Question e-mail filtering on evolution


Is there a way to get evolution to reject e-mail from senders not in your addressbook? I can't seem to figure out a way using their filters.

Unfortunately they don't have one that would reject if their not in your address book. You would most likely need to filter them out by using the recipients option. If your address book is fairly large, well, its going to be a big list.

Well, maybe cause he refers to use evolution, I don't know but that doesn't really help him answer his question now does it?

I would use Thunderbird since it already has the option I'm looking for but I wanted to use some kind of calendar app to remind me when it's time to pay some bills. I looked at xcal and remind but I would rather use evo.

Evolution Whitelist Contact list Filter

I threw together here that you can find here:
http://www.enek.net/projects.php

It's written entirely in C code and should be easy to implement on any *nix system. If there are any problems getting it to work please let me know. I mostly use this filter to make sure that mail from people on my contact list aren't marked as spam by my other spam filters.

Thumbs up

hey, filtering is very well there... I don't know what version of evolution you've been using. You can use the junk mail settings to do that, (its in the Tools-> Settings.) in the new snapshots ( v >= 1.4.x )
