Mail::FilterXML - Filter email based on a rules file written in XML.
use Mail::FilterXML; my $filter = new MailFilter(rules => "/home/matt/mail_rules.xml"); $filter->process();
This module builds upon Mail::Audit by Simon Cozens. Mail::Audit is a module for constructing filters, Mail::FilterXML is a filter of sorts. FilterXML is just made up of some logic for processing an email message, and is controlled by the contents of a rules file, so if I wanted to block a particular sender, I could just add an element to my rules file, like:
<Rule type="from" content="microsoft.com" folder="Trash" action="program" /> See the mail_rules.xml file for an example.
The content attribute can contain perl regexps, such as *\.microsoft\.*$, etceteras.
I will be adding new "types" of rules, and the ability to reject or altogether ignore messages, as possible in Mail::Audit. Any feedback or patches are welcome.
