Andy & Rudy,
Thanks. Activate did the trick. I wanted to white-list my son's email
and forward unknown ones to me. My little test script works fine.
At some point I want to move my mail to imap and have sieve do all the
filtering. I've got 180+ filters in Thunderbird; many more than I want
to convert by hand. The Thunderbird filter file, msgFilterRules.dat,
looks pretty straight forward. Maybe I can write a script to convert them.
