I'm trying to filter all messages that come from AOL.COM and put
* ^From: *(_at_)aol(_dot_)com
in my .procmailrc. I was hoping to dump all the aol.com
stuff to either dev/null or the Trash file, but it still
comes into my normal inbox.
What am I missing??
Your condition line says:
"^From:" # a line starting from From:
" *" # (thats a space star) followed by 0 or
# more spaces
"@aol.com" # followed by @aol.com
It will probably never match because there is no provision
in the regular expression to match the username part of the
the replacement of " *" (space star) with ".*" (dot start)
allows the regexp to match *any* number (including zero) of
*any* character between the "From:" and the "@aol.com"
