The code modification is not complicated.

Modifying rcvstore to deliver to multiple folders does not stray past the
original intent of rcvstore. Modifying refile to handle sequences (which
would be necessary to have the rcvstore behavior) is definitely outside the
scope of that tool.

I'm not using slocal. I need rcvstore to have this functionality.

I don't understand this paragraph -- could you be more specific how a
rcvstore to multiple folders is going to interfere with other nmh commands?
Keep in mind that rcvstore does not manipulate the context (ignoring

I also do not understand why you need a "common location" to achieve the
linking. Linking will only work if all the mail is on a single filesystem; if
it wasn't clear, I will state explicitly that this (and _any_ other solution
involving refile, etc.) will require that the seperate folders reside on the
same filesystem.
