Sorry. I edit in a separate text editor (GVIM) that has a less
erratic spell checker. I save and exit out of gvim, add a subject
line, and transmit. I forgot step two on this query.

I have more or less given up on Claws-Mail search capability. It misses
too many. So I want to be a be able to save all the messages in a
folder but without all the header info so I can use grep to find the
message I want. Since there is a message #1 etc. in each folder I will
have to add the name of the source folder to each meessage and so on.

My question is, might there be an auto backup facility built into CM
that will aid in this process?
