A way to do it in Tiger
Authored by: SeanAhern on Aug 07, '05 02:34:38PM

I wrote a python script that does something similar. To make it work on Tiger, I did the following:

1) Install PostfixEnabler and turn on the IMAP server.
2) Configure fetchmail to get your mail from your "real" IMAP/POP server and deliver it locally.
3) Configure Mail.app to use your local IMAP server instead of your "real" one.

Now you've got all the buttery smoothness of Mail.app, yet still have the ability to use UNIX mbox tools on your mail (procmail, mutt, undupe, mairix, etc.)

(Now if only Mail.app had all the power of mairix....)
