This book will explain in easy to understand language the complexities of Procmail. With almost all linux distributions including procmail as a standard package Unix like systems and procmail are finding their way into more office and homes leaving more people wondering how to do 'the clever bits'. The book will be split into 2 parts - the first part fairly introductory for new procmail users and the second more of a reference book for 'power procmail users'. The first part will have copious examples to help the reader using a mythical company as a running case study. The second part will provide solutions and tips and tricks for the more complex features of procmail.

Are you receiving dozens of emails each day? Feeling overwhelmed? Do you want something that will make your life easier? That will separate personal email from work email? Then Procmail Companion will show you how to control your email rather than your email controlling you.
Procmail is a program that can automatically process electronic mail. It is small, fast, secure and free! It runs on Unix and Unix-like systems and is growing in popularity. It kicks in after the mail arrives on your machine and before you read the mail. With a few simple sets of instructions, or recipes, Procmail puts all messages from a photography mailing list into one mailbox and all mail from a particular set of friends into another. Emails that tell you how to ‘make money fast' or asking if you would like ‘to buy a time share' are thrown away and don't waste your time. This book provides pain free explanations about how to use and get the most from Procmail. Using case studies, explanations and examples this book will teach new users how to use Procmail and give advanced users tips and tricks on the more esoteric features of Procmail.
Skills you will learn:
‘I get over 200 pieces of email every day on my work account. I get nearly that many to my home account and to legacy accounts that bounce around the universe prior to landing in some box or other. Procmail is my friend. Procmail filters and sorts my stuff. Martin McCarthy is my friend, too. For Marty has written a book on what Procmail can do and how to use it. If you want to know how Procmail can handle mailing lists, McCarthy tells you. If you want to handle SPAM, McCarthy tells you how. And if you'd like to do these things, but fear that you don't understand email of the Internet well enough, McCarthy gives you enough of an introduction so that you need not fear any more.
McCarthy's book had enabled me to put it to other uses. I am really gratified to have read it. You will be gratified too.'
