That's fine if all your messages for a particular 
smart folder have some common factor, such as a 
mailing list name. But what happens when the 
mailing list changes its name or host or 

Or if a project you are working on gets mail 
messages from random people. These sorts of 
message I file manually because no rule could 
ever pick them up reliably.

How could smart folders work in these cases?

I have been using e-mail for far too many years 
and have come across these situations too many 
times to be able to rely on smart folders to find 
what I want.
