(announce) deleting spams on POP server
Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2005 23:55:20 GMT
Latest update of my 'popcheck.sh' (version 1.3),
now uses Procmail rcfile to test for spam, instead of 'egrep' as was
done before. Although either method is okey for Microsoft Swen/Netsky
worms, the main benefit of using Procmail rcfile is that you can add
recipes from your own ~/.procmailrc to detect and delete other spams.
popcheck.sh [rcfile spamfile]
Default 'rcfile' is ~/popcheck.rc, and default 'spamfile' is ~/spam.
The script checks the headers of each message on POP server. If spam
pattern is detected by 'rcfile', then the header will be saved to ~/spam
for future reference, and the message on the server will be deleted.
