Enjoying alpine to the fullest

I know most of you don't care about my alpine fetish, but this goes out to my fellow alpine users :-)

Pine was almost dead for years and likely because of that I never reconsidered optimising my mail-usage. With alpine's rebirth I have been busy improving my daily overload of personal messages.

My ideal email client

Since 10 years I am praying for a much more convenient email program, one that understands my relation with incoming mail and incoming folders. Let me explain...

I get lots of mails from different sources. Some are addressing me, others have me in Cc:. Some are from mailinglist that are very important to me (because I am responsible for answering), others I just want to follow up if I have some time. My email-client however treats all these mails the same way.
