Hello, if set_sort=threads is okay for you, maybe I have a solution: in my .muttrc I put color index brightwhite green "~f ---" folder-hook .maildir/$ 'set sort = threads; exec collapse-all' bind index < collapse-thread bind index > collapse-all Then I created some "categories" in my Inbox; they are just plain mails, but with the sender edited to "---". Just send you a normal email, choose it in the index and press 'e' (or some other mapping...). It should open in your favorite $editor, at the top you'll find you email address. Change it to '---' and save. Now sync your mailbox ('$'), so the old mail goes. Then this new "category" (you gave it a nice Subject:, did you? If not, just edit again :) ) has a nice green background. To put mails into it, mark them ('t'), go to your "category" and press, erm, '&' is the default for link-threads, right? Now comes the magic: Press '>' (or re-open the maildir), and all threads are collapsed. Your "category" is closed, the mails inside are hidden, the index is cleaned up. To open/close a "category", browse to it and press '<'. If you are done with that "category", you can mark the whole thread with '<ESC>t' and move it with a simple ';C' to some other maildir...
