See, what happened was that I got back from my travels and finally
decided to apply some of the very helpful advice I'd gotten about how
to set up server-side filtering.  A post by you said:

    ``You should start by reading
    http://spambayes.sourceforge.net/applications.html.  There is a
    link to a page called "guide to integrating hammie with your
    mailer" on that page that should give you some good starting

Which I did.  I followed the link, which actually led to
which told me all about imapfilter.py... which I guess is a new thing
that wasn't around a few weeks ago when you gave me these directions?

Anyway, if I should start somewhere else, please let me know.   I
think that with some work I could create mbox files of the IMAP
messages I have classified if I have to.

BTW, it appears that one or the other of my mailers actually deleted
the messages that imapfilter marked as deleted as it moved things
into UnsureBox.
