NAME

Mail::FilterXML - Filter email based on a rules file written in XML.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Mail::FilterXML;
  my $filter = new MailFilter(rules => "/home/matt/mail_rules.xml");
  $filter->process();



DESCRIPTION

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.

FUTURE

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.
