Then I edited "dman@" in the From: header to "feldman@" and ran the
message through again. It still succeeded. Then I added the `w'
flag to fgrep in the recipe above. It would then only work with
"dman@", not "feldman@", "goldman@", or "anything-elsedman@".
ah, now I get ya. :-)
I'll try it and watch some more, and work on my sed :-)
Later, David said his initial tests didn't work. I suspect I
know the reason. If he's saving the whitelists like so:
I.e., with the angle-brackets, then certainly fgrep won't look
past the angle brackets. However, since such brackets are not
requisite as parts of email addresses, and since not all mail
clients use them, I would not recommend having them in the whitelist
procmail mailing list
