Running procmail v3.14 on a Linux system (distribution not known
to me) with procamil as the local MDA. MUA Pine 4.21. I dial or
telnet into shell (commercial ISP).
From time to time I receive spam (or what has always turned out to
be spam) with no apparent body. Pine first displays an empty message.
If I 'r'eply to it, Pine sets up an edit space (I use joe) with two
quoted lines. If I download the message to my home Win98 box (pipe to
Zmodem directly out of Pine) and look at the file with a binary editor,
it nearly always shows three MS-style newlines, 0x0D0A, and nothing
else. I am trying to trap such messages and deliver them to a
potential-spam folder. I have tried this:
# Empty body
* < 10
My thinking is that with the three MS-style newlines, the actual body
consists of six bytes. However, this recipe does not catch such
messages. I have a lot of filtering recipes, but they are nearly all
quite simple, as I am not a procmail heavy. Any assistance will be
very much appreciated.
