as im using different email clients to read/send my mails i want to setup procmail to move my emails to a the folder which is normally done by Thunderbird filter feature.
I know that i can do it by using the following code for procmail in my email users .procmailrc file:
:0: * ^From:[email protected] myfolder
But i have a list of about 50 email adresses which i would like to move to that specific “myfolder”.
So by using
:0: * ^From:[email protected] * ^From:[email protected] jimsmail
So how do i use the OR operator.
Actually i have a simple text file where all email adresses are.
Would be cool to have a feature where procmail ready in that file and checks if From matches with at least one of the lines in the file, the moves email to “myfolder”.
:0: * ^From:file(email.txt) myfolder
Does anybode if this or something similar is possible.
I dont want to add these 3 lines 50 times in my procmailrc file.
Procmail uses regexps, so you can separate addresses with the
:0: * ^From:.((first|second|third)@mail.com|(fourth|fifth)@othermail.com) myfolder
would work. Could get a little messy with fifty all on one line, mind…
I found the solution.
With this solution im able to use a simple email text file holding all email addresses in each in one line.
The code in my .procmailrc is as follows:
EMAILFILE=/path/to/my/emailfile FROM=`formail -xFrom: | sed -e 's/ *(.*)//; s/>.*//; s/.*:< *//'` :0 * ? fgrep -qxis $FROM $EMAILFILE myfolder
