Is there a way to turn off specific pine filters without removing the
details. I would like to keep the details of the filter in case I want to
turn them back on at a later date. This is also useful for testing
I don't want to have to retype the filters again.
EX: Some email programs allow you to enable or disable via a select
option for each defined filter.
You could try altering 'Filter Action' to 'Just Set Message Status'
The way I do this is to put the filters in a file and then
eXclude the file. To do this, type
and then you'll see these two commands
Type I to give a name to the file to be included. Then use $ to
shuffle the filter you want to turn off into the file. Then use X
to exclude the file.
(unlike Steve Ballmer of MS who said "That's the way good software
gets designed. So if you pull out a piece it won't run." See:

I should have known there would be a 'right' way to do this.
Speed. (who really _must_ read some of the manuals :-)
