Procmail recipe question
 
I have a spam filtering solution that adds *****SPAM***** as a prefix to the subject line of any email that was detected as spam. I'm trying to get these sent over to a Trash folder using the following recipe:

Code:

VERBOSE=off
MAILDIR=~/mail # elm users might use $HOME/Mail instead
PMDIR=~/.procmail
DEFAULT=$MAILDIR/
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/log
# INCLUDERC=$PMDIR/other.rc
# add as many INCLUDERC's as you like
# end of .procmailrc


* ^SUBJECT: \*\*\*\*\*SPAM\*\*\*\*\*
{
      :0
      $HOME/mail/.Trash/cur
}

This is putting everything in the Trash folder. What am I doing wrong here?

A receipe begins with the ':0'. Try:

Quote:

:0
* ^SUBJECT: \*\*\*\*\*SPAM\*\*\*\*\*
.Trash/
The trailing slash on Trash/ tells procmail that this is a maildir, so the mail will actually go in $HOME/mail/.Trash/new.

You don't really need the { } in this case, since there is only one action.

Thanks! What does the :0 indicate? Should following recipes have incrimenting numbers like :1, then :2, etc? Also, how can these items be marked as read so they're not new in Outlook or Ximian?

It is just a tag (as far as I can tell), all recipes should begin with :0 (not :1, :2 etc).

Not sure. I just spotted you were trying to deliver to ~/mail/.Trash/cur. That might work, since new mail goes in new and read mail goes in cur. Try changing the last line to '.Trash/cur', similar to what you had before (no trailing slash this time). I think that should work.
