I thought that might be the case but where is the documentation? It might 
tempt me to upgrade.

On this general subject it should be fairly easy for a knowledgeable person to 
write a shell script to do this sort of thing but novices do not stand much 
chance. Showing my age - my first program written in the late 60's was in 
dartmouth basic using a paper tape and a teletype. That language is the most 
concise, complete, easily understood set of instructions ever invented. Later 
prior to the pc it was extended to include file systems, simple formatted 
output and some structured constructs such as whiles and case statements etc 
and run on small low powered desk top micro's eg Z80 and 6500 etc. Some of 
the basics were even user extendable all in 8kbytes or less-True programming 
for the masses. Rather than specific scripts for kmail as indicated here 
wouldn't a kde wide scripting language based on that be a more sensible and 
generally more useful path to follow? Ok line numbers and goto's are old hat 
but are on the other hand very easy to use and can be understood by anybody. 
Following on from that Microshaft did gwbasic. Again easily understood and 
capable of handling graphics. That might eventually also be a useful further 
step in the right direction. The linux scripts I'm aware of remind me of what 
I used to do with KED and batch files on a dos box. A few letters to do what 
ever it was I wanted to do. Productive but not easily understood by others.
