I read this as "Gather all mail from me from this year in the folders
inbox, outbox, todo into the folder results".

I don't have refiling/moving/copying yet, but for your purposes, I think
a named sequence (not implemented either) would do it:

, seq results +inbox +outbox +todo from:address@hidden "date>2011-01-01"

Then you can read them with , read results
or show them all at once with , show results

(And if you need a physical directory, , copy results +folder
or directly , copy ... +folder)

I think global sequences are a good idea, since you can easily restrict
them to folders.

, move +outbox "date<2011-01-01" +outbox-2011

I think I'll implement these commands soon.

Whoa. :)  Please note it's all alpha software yet.
