[NAFEX] Selecting "topics"/sorting archives?

The other possible way to get only the pomology is to check the archives
regularly and ask it to sort by topic. BUT, the last time I tried this it
wouldn't sort by topic. Has this error been corrected/ feature added/ or
could someone post the trick for making it work?

Use your email software filter. By setting some rules that are something
like the below you can filter out a lot;
If email is FROM nafex and
the BODY does not contain the words "apple/s"
or "pear/s" direct email to TRASH.
However, you will miss many emails that pertain to apples and pears that do
not contain those key words. Searching the SUBJECT line will lose even
more emails. We are notoriously bad for not changing SUBJECT lines when
the dialog shifts.
Filters are fine if you are willing to miss a lot of email. I just use the
filter between my ears and if the content is running in a direction that
does not interest me, I simply delete it in seconds.
