@vindex rmail-automatic-folder-directives
Rmail can automatically save messages from your primary Rmail file
(the one that @code{rmail-file-name} specifies) to other files, based
on the value of the variable @code{rmail-automatic-folder-directives}.
This variable is a list of elements (@samp{directives}) that say which
messages to save where. Each directive is a list consisting of an
output file, followed by one or more pairs of a header name and a regular
expression. If a message has a header matching the specified regular
expression, that message is saved to the given file. If the directive
has more than one header entry, all must match. Rmail checks directives
when it shows a message from the file @code{rmail-file-name}, and
applies the first that matches (if any). If the output file is
@code{nil}, the message is deleted, not saved. For example, you can use
this feature to save messages from a particular address, or with a
particular subject, to a dedicated file.
