Initial Comment:
Joh Udell made a fabulous suggestion on InfoWorld 
recently.

<quote>Thanks to the SpamBayes plug-in, my e-mail 
client does a great job of learning which messages I do 
or don't want to see. But it should do so much more! My 
work life is organized around groups and projects that 
form and evolve in fluid ways. E-mail folders and filters 
help me manage these activities. I want to be pleasantly 
surprised by software that notices when message 
patterns indicate the formation of a group or project, 
and volunteers to set up folders and filters for me. [...] 
No breakthrough in artificial intelligence is needed to 
make this happen. We do the pattern recognition 
ourselves, quite naturally, as we process our information 
flows. If software paid more attention to what we 
attend to, and how, there could be more pleasant 
surprises. </quote>

So, my suggestion would be, just to implement this idea. 
As far as I udnerstood, SpamBayes/Outbreak already 
monitors when the user moves e.Mail around and 
marks/unmarks it, depending on where it is moved.

Likewise, the Plugin could extend its reach and maintain 
not only a list fo SPAM but track the information flow, 
tag messages to belong to certain 
groups/projects/whatever. 

I'd be happy to hear what you think of this idea, and if 
you see a possibility to work towards tis direction.

Best regards,
Johann
