I am trying out claws, and so far it looks pretty good, but as you may
be able to see, I'm still using evo :)  There is (so far) only one thing
that lets claws down, hopefully someone can show me how to do it:

Virtual folders.  Because I have thousands of messages at work and at
home, and I frequently need to find messages from months or even a
couple of years ago for contractual reasons, I heavily use virtual
search folders in evolution.

It's essentially the claws "search folder" option, but the results are
put in a new folder.  The differences are:
     1. Results are kept across program restarts - no need to enter the
        search terms every time
     2. Results are placed by themselves - not interspersed with all
        other messages in the original folder
     3. Results are updated on the fly - as soon as a message is
        changed / arrives in the original folder, it appears in the
        virtual folder
     4. Changes to the message in the virtual folder (delete, mark, etc)
        apply to the real message
     5. Works with _any_ selection of real folders (imap, pop, whatever
        you have)

Is there anything that can do this?  I found "matrix", but it doesn't do
3, 4, or 5 (only works on maildir, not imap).  I can't find anything
else...

TIA,
