I must be insane! It must be all the years of using Sylpeed, then
claws, and finally CM that must have gotten to me. (BTW, thanks Colin
and everyone else that put so much hard work in CM)

I use threads and 99.9999% of my folders are threaded by subject and
not by date (I must be insane). Then I have Ctrl-] to hide/unhide the
already read messages. From a folder with 16249 emails, I view less
than half a dozen emails, those are the ones that are not read yet.

Each topic/mailing list/customer has its own folder. I have 78
filters to direct/trash... and btw my inbox is almost always empty.
My inbox is what CM doesn't know where to direct and I have to deal it
manually. My CM has over 130,000+ emails and is still instantaneous.
