That's pretty much what I did.  I have about 50 filters so it wasn't 
easy, but I did it.

If you have a lot of filters and would prefer typing it into a config 
file directly, rather than setting them up one by one in the GUI, I can 
give you the necessary filter file format hints.

Additionally, claws doesn't seem to have a built-in method for adding a 
header via filter, which is one of the things I did with my kde filter 
scripts, with each one adding a header indicating the filter name, so I 
had some hope of diagnosing problems when things went awry.  BUT...

That's where claws-mail extensibility comes to the rescue, there's a 
filter action that allows calling an external script with filter 
controlled parameters, and now I have a script that adds the header as 
assigned by the filter. =:^)

If such a script sounds useful, to you or anyone else, ask and I can post 
it, or a link to it, or something.  (I should probably think about 
contacting upstream, to have it added to their list of utility scripts, 
but I've not done that yet, and I didn't see a script for it in the 
existing list, thus my creation of my own solution.)

I see you expanded on your other comment in a second post, so I'll 
address it in a reply there.
