I should have given more details: I meant managing inbox *without having
to open each message*, i.e. just by looking at the Subject. I am using
Netscape, and in the subwindow listing folder contents, the 'sender' of
a message is the *real* sender, not cygwin-xfree. Hence, one has to open
a message to know it came from cygwin-xfree.
