Evolution and Pine

Ximian Evolution is a personal productivity suite available on all Athena workstations. It is also the officially supported mail reader for Athena. It can read the emails you have stored on your server and in your MH folders, filter your email and offers a personal calendar, task manager, and contact manager. To start it just click on the mail icon in your GNOME taskbar.

From http://www.washington.edu/pine/:

PineŽ - a Program for Internet News & Email - is a tool for reading, sending, and managing electronic messages. Pine was developed by Computing & Communications at the University of Washington. Though originally designed for inexperienced email users, Pine has evolved to support many advanced features, and an ever-growing number of configuration and personal-preference options.

Pine is an easy to use mail client with comprehensive online help. Many of the keystokes used in the editor are similiar to GNU Emacs (C-c cancels, C-x sends, C-v pages down). In any screen, the most commonly-used commands appear at the bottom of the screen. For other commands at any time, press o. In any screen (except the editor) the ? key will bring up a context-sensitive help page. You can exit this menu at any time.

Pine can filter your incoming mail into seperate mail folders. From the main menu, enter setup, select rules, and select filters. Now, you can add a new filter.
