I'll go out on a limb and say this isn't possible because OE isn't a
scriptable application. Indeed one of OE's (few) attractions is precisely
its greater immunity to macro viruses and the like when conservatively

I'm only doing this as a favor to you ... experience has taught me that most
such definitive statements will be proved wrong within 24 hours. Maybe
someone knows enough about the file structures to tell you how to do it
through the filestore when OE isn't active.
