Re: Tactics for eliminating spam



(This isn't really Debian development related, so further discussion should
probably be taken somewhere else, but I can't think of a suitable forum at
the moment.)

Here's my current procmail rule file (minus irrelevant stuff such as logfile
settings). It assumes Maildir format folders, adjust accordingly.

#
# Try to deduce name of mailing list (and thus its folder) from headers.
#

:0
* ^X-mailing-list: <\/[^@]*
Maildirs/Lists/$MATCH/

:0
* ^Delivered-To: mailing list \/[^@]*
Maildirs/Lists/$MATCH/

:0
* ^Sender: owner-\/[^@]*
Maildirs/Lists/$MATCH/


#
# Lists not caught by the generic filters.

:0
* ^TOfhs-discuss@ucsd.edu
Maildirs/Lists/fsstnd/

:0
* ^TOldp-l@
Maildirs/Lists/ldp-l/

:0
* ^TOiki-aktivistit
Maildirs/Lists/iki-aktivistit/


#
# The rest goes into inbox, on the assumption that it is personal mail.
# Except that if it doesn't have my address on the To or Cc lines, it's
# spam and goes into a crap folder.
#

:0 W: inbox.lock
