Or even better type
and then type
to get to the 4th occurence of 'body' and the part where
'variablename ??' is discussed. This is especially useful if you
are using Procmail 3.22, which has a bug related to this. The bug
and the workaround is discussed here:
And I discuss this in the 'Anatomy of a Recipe' section of my
Quick Start, which is here:
BTW, pursuant to an exchange which you had with someone else here, if
spending the time to learn procmail, or manage the scripts becomes too much
of a bother, you might consider just using one of the managed spam
filtering packages such as SpamAssassin.
I agree with Sean. For most people it does not make sense to
create and maintain your own spam-detection recipes. Instead use
one of the open-source tools that hundreds (or thousands!) of
people are using and maintaining. I use SpamAssassin and
recommend it, but I'm keeping my eyes on POPFile and will
probably switch to that once they have a Unix daemon.
Hope this helps,
