build_ldif.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 prints to STDOUT a file in ldif format containing entries for all of the addresses that it finds. It also appends a message into the specified folder containing all of the addresses in both the To: field of the message header and in an LDIF-format attachment.

build_ldif.pl requires MIME::Lite.


build_ldif.pl -h

build_ldif.pl -s servername -u username -p password -f folder [ -d ]

-u The user to log in as

NOTE: You can supply defaults for the above options by updating the script.
