One comment I didn't make in the earlier post was that I had changed
* ! ^FROM_MAILER
* ! ^FROM_DAEMON
Generally, when you want to get things out of the way, ^FROM_DAEMON is better
to use than the narrower ^FROM_MAILER. ^FROM_MAILER is more suited to
selecting than to deselecting. Specifically, if I had a pager, I wouldn't
want to be notified about any mail matching ^FROM_DAEMON; to rule out mail
that matches ^FROM_MAILER but get paged for mail that matches ^FROM_DAEMON
without matching ^FROM_MAILER -- which is likely to be even less urgent than
mail that does match ^FROM_MAILER -- just doesn't make sense to me.
Good Info, thanks, I remember changing all my Daemon's to Mailers based on
a recommendation from my hosting provider about three years ago. Now you've
got me raking my brain trying to remember why <g>. Must have been Daemon
was catching news/mailing lists too often. Now that I'm using SB with
approved lists that should no longer be a problem.
A big thanks to you and Bart for all the help. This list certainly has a
lot of expertise available.
