build_dist.pl accepts the name of a target folder as an argument. It then opens that folder and rummages through all the mail files in it, looking for "Reply-to:" headers (or "From:" headers, where there is no "Reply-to:"). It then appends a message into the folder containing all of the addresses in thus found as a list of recipients. This message can be used to conveniently drag and drop names into an address book, distribution list, or e-mail message, using the GUI client of choice.
The email appended to the folder specified in the -f option will have the subject "buid_dist.pl folder Output".
b<build_dist.pl> -s servername -u username -p password -f folder [ -d ]
- -f The folder name to process.
- -s The servername of the IMAP server
- -u The user to log in as
- -p The password for the user specified in the -u option
- -d Tells the IMAP client to turn on debugging info
- -h Prints out this document
NOTE: You can supply defaults for the above options by updating the script.
