Sort of. This is effectively the "presort" functionality in exmh:


slocal expects a single message on stdin, so presort (and probably what you'll have to do also) incs the mail into a temporary folder and then loops, feeding each message one at a time into slocal.

2. My Editor: variable in profile config set to 'vim', but I would like
to pass some arguments to it. If I add them to profile I get error:

unable to exec vim +':set ft=mail': No such file or directory

Is there any other solution than creating #!/bin/sh script and putting
it in $PATH?

I don't think so, no. MH expects the profile entry to be the name of an executable; it is interpreting your "command plus args" line as a single name with whitespaces in it.

Either a shell script or some other method vim supports will need to be used.
