Dmitry and the Stalker folks:

I might suggest that a simple way to allow for users to put something like
this up themselves would be to change SIMS slightly.  Currently, messages
arrive into the "Submitted" folder from the POP module, and are processed
from there by the SMTP module.  However, if these two modules could be made
to look at different folder names, a daemon could get in the middle to do
processing for ALL accounts much as AutoShare does for individual accounts

I think that this doesn't even really need a user interface, since it'd be
a really expert-level hack; a 'STR ' resource somewhere should do the trick.

What do you think?
