+Mail may be fetched from IMAP or POP3 servers, from local maildirs, or read
+from standard input.  It is then filtered based on regular expressions, its
+size or age, or the output of a (shell) command.  It can be rewritten by an
+external process, dropped, left on the server or delivered into maildirs,

+separation to safely deliver mail in multi-user setups.")
