First of all, thanks to everyone that made suggestions about my wanting to
extract a senders name from an email. After looking back in some old
emails that I had saved I decided that my best bet would be to save the
email address itself.
However I have a second questiion. I want to be able to remove an address
from a file if someone sends me a notice. The following is my recipie so
far. Any suggestions would be helpful.
* ^Subject: remove
REMOVE = `formail -rzx "From:"`
| (sed -n /$REMOVE/d .address > $HOME/temp_file \
mv tempfile .address) ;\
(send notice saying they were removed. this parts already works)
