It can switch off the sender, recipient and/or any arbitrary header, but only
for the case where you immediately file all incoming mail into a folder.  I
like all my mail to go to my inbox, and then I file it away somewhere after
reading it.  And I just like the convenience of having the mailreader guess
which folder I'm going to move it to based on the subject line.

It's OpenWebmail: http://openwebmail.org/
