sed command to print expression plus entire line after


Hey guys

Using the following ced command with a lot of help from a couple of forum members which works great.
I cannot work out how to print the "said: xxx" and also include the rest of the line ie, description of the error, in bold below.

sed -rn 's/.*<([^>]*).*(said: 450*|said: 451*|said: 452*|said: 550*([- ]5\.1\.1)?).*/\1,\2/p' mail > out.txt

Eg, above ced urrently prints the 'Person@amailbox.com,said: 550' I'm guessing it's p ot 'p', which didn't work!

Jul 3 05:58:54 245ML postfix/smtp[15004]: 77FFC1665C0: to=<Person@amailbox.com>, relay=mail.amailbox.com[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:25, delay=23, delays=0.82/0.13/21/0.26, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (host mail.amailbox.com[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] said: 550 <Person@amailbox.com>, Recipient unknown (in reply to RCPT TO command))

This is just one example error description.

Thanks and hope it makes sense!

If you just want the whole line, you don't need sed, you could just use grep.
Here's sed
Code:
# just entire line
sed -rn 's/.*<([^>]*).*(said: 450*|said: 451*|said: 452*|said: 550*([- ]5\.1\.1)?).*/&/p'


# matches, followed by line 
sed -rn 's/.*<([^>]*).*(said: 450*|said: 451*|said: 452*|said: 550*([- ]5\.1\.1)?).*/\1,\2,&/p'

Hi chrism01, thank you for tip.

Using the '# matches, followed by line'
Instead of printing, eg, Person@amailbox.com,said: said: 550 Person@amailbox.com, Recipient unknown (in reply to RCPT TO command)) Which would be perfect.

It actually prints:

Person@amailbox.com,said: 550,Jul 4 04:14:24 245ML postfix/smtp[15004]: 77FFC1665C0: to=<Person@amailbox.com>, relay=mail.amailbox.com[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:25, delay=23, delays=0.82/0.13/21/0.26, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (host mail.amailbox.com[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] said: 550 <Person@amailbox.com>, Recipient unknown (in reply to RCPT TO command))


Seems to be adding another 'said:' and re positioning date and time
