Re: [ Glad I am not on bootstrap]
Message ID:
You absolutely do _not_ need to be a procmail wizard to seperate a single list with key words in the titles, and even if you did, surely someone here could post their filter, ready for individuals to tweak to their situation?

If you're not lucky enough to use *NIX for reading your email, then the chances are that your email client can cope with what's needed. I know for a fact that both Outlook and Groupwise can filter the mail appropriately....

Problem.  You have to be a procmail wizard to get anything done.
Maybe I'm a Luditte, but I've never learned mail filtering, and having
this knowledge as a prerequisite for contributing to Perl might be a
silly barrier to others as well.  bootstrap has almost totally swamped
my meager mail capabilities.

This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and
intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they
are addressed. If you have received this email in error please notify
the system manager.

This footnote also confirms that this email message has been swept by
MIMEsweeper for the presence of computer viruses.
