A flexible mailbox archiver program based on GNU mailutils.

mbar scans the given mailbox folder for mailboxes matching a supplied pattern. For each mailbox found, a set of criteria is applied to its messages. All messages that matched the criteria are then picked and moved to the mailbox of the same name, located in the backup folder. If the destination mailbox doesn’t exist, it is created with the necessary intermediate directories.
