I need a program to view (as root) multiple maildir's & move mail between them

Hi all
I need a program that will allow me to manipulate multiple maildir's under /home/vpopmail/domains/<my.domain>. I need to be able to view & sort emails by subject & also be able to move them from one user to another. By this I mean actually move a message from /home/vpopmail/domains/<my.domain>/fred/Maildir/cur to /home/vpopmail/domains/<my.domain>/mary/Maildir/cur for example. This could be done via a file manager but the messages aren't stored on disk with there subject as there file name, so sifting through over 1000 messages would be extremely time consuming. (Especially on my mail server, a Pentium 133) When I had windose as my mail server I used a program called "Workgroup Mail" which had a gui front-end that could do all that. (but for every 10 mail accounts I had to fork out more cash, typical. Hence Linux & qmail) If anyone could recommend something that could do what is mentioned here I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks in advance

Yes, I use qmailadmin to add, change, delete users, forwards, aliases etc.. but it can't move mails from one user to another. (Unless there is some sort of plugin for it, of which I have checked out but had no luck)
All I want to be able to do is move mail around by viewing it's subject & content without having to open the actual file & view it via a file manager. ie, Nautilus, mc, file runner, etc.
