I don't recall ever seeing such an option in Mail.  I've always just 
snipped my way to the sites I want to insert comemnts...

Not so custom; I think it's the old MH-style mailboxes (directory per 
mailbox; file per message).  MH was a collection of "small" commands 
for handling mail, and this approach seemed to work better (for MH, at 
any rate).  Not as old as the 'mbox' approach, but it's been around for 
20++ years.

Just another $0.02 (0.0005 euros ;-})
