Just curious of something. When trying to filter by subject, which
of these is the correct syntax.
This?: * ^Subject:.*virus
Or This?: * Subject:.*virus
I'm trying to figure out if the carrot is even needed or if it is,
where, when and why?
the CARAT means "The Start of a line marker"
So ^Subject: will not match against:
X-Spam-Check: "Subject: Contains Viagra"
but will only match on the actual Subject header.
without the carat will work, but using it is a good habit to get into
so you are reminded "I'm looking for the Subject: HEADER and not some
other misc "Subject:" that appears elsewhere in the headers.
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night I can see paradise
