[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.
