Thanks, Hiro.  That's what I thought, but as you implied, I don't see a
straightforward way to direct formail's output back to Sylpheed for
delivery into the MH folders.  I suppose I could have formail pass the
separated messages to a different MDA, but I'm wondering if there's a
way to have Sylpheed grab the output and continue its delivery
procedures.  IOW, is there any way to do message undigesting within
Sylpheed, or do I have to bring in an additional MDA (besides the
formail command itself)?
