 +====== Individualized Message Filters ======
  
 +Server-side filtering is probably the most efficient way of dealing with your emails but it rarely is implemented. The following is a pseudo-schema for doing just that. Arguably it is easier to implement than Sieve and more user-friendly --provided that a reasonable GUI is made available to assist the user.
 +
 +The fields and actions are inspired by both Mozilla Thunderbird and MS Outlook Explorer --which means any GUI that is similar to those should be both familiar and user-friendly enough for most users.

 +===== Module_filter2sieve =====
 +Perhaps our interface module to generate sieve scripts from a design scheme similar the one described on this page. The module is based on dbmail-2.x to allow thunderbird/sunbird to work with this dbmail interface via IMAP. The module will be contributed to the community when version 0.1-alpha comes out at the first week of September 2007. We have a working prototype that is now at version 0.0.8-rc20. The project started in August 2005 and it is still not public.
