I am fetching my email from a POP server with something like
that
   (setq mail-sources
      '((pop :server "server"
             :port 995
             :user "$mailaddr"
             ... )))
and I am sorting emails with `nnmail-split-methods'.  Is it
possible to rewrite parts of those mails?

Example: I am often seeing googlegroups with a subject like:

   Subject: [GROUPNAME] email subject text

I'd like to remove the "[GROUPNAME]" string because this email
will be sorted with nnmail-split-methods into the correct group.

Not exactly what you are askng for, but perhaps useful:

,----[ C-h v gnus-list-identifiers RET ]
| gnus-list-identifiers is a variable defined in ‘gnus-sum.el’.
| Its value is nil
| 
| Documentation:
| Regexp that matches list identifiers to be removed from subject.
| This can also be a list of regexps.
`----

It won't modify the actual emails, but hides the text.


  Best regards,

    Adam

I knew that Gnus has already a feature to handle this
case but I were not able to find it.  Thanks!
