I let my server do the sorting. It's a lot more powerful than my laptop
for one thing and more importantly: I use multiple clients and MailMate
won't necessarily be the first to "see" a message.
Sieve sorts my mail mostly into a mailbox for every mailing list I'm
subscribed to. I use MailMate's "smart mailboxes" to bundle related
lists together with submailboxes giving me access to the individual
lists without having to dig through the sources. I'm subscribed to a
lot of mailing lists I only read when I'm working on certain things (I'm
too lazy to unsubscribe and disk space is cheap) so I have a smart
mailbox for "lists I care about at the moment" which I edit when needed.
