Regarding sending mail from mutilple accounts.

You can use the "identity feature.  When you define an identiy you can specify 
the value to be put into the "From" field.  It will be sent from your current 
computer, but the "From" field will contain your gmail account address for 
example.  This was suf
ficient for me.

For retrieving mail from, for example gmail, I use fetchmail which will get it 
and then hand it over to mailutils' "mail.local", which will store it in MH 
mail format.

mail.local uses a sieve filter, which you can use to keep trash mail out.

I never made a fancy sieve script and only use the following to put mail into 
one box, you can select based on names, fields, etc.

"fileinto "mh:/home/users-name/mail/inbox"
