Manual Reference Pages - MAIL::LISTDETECTOR (3)
Mail::ListDetector - Perl extension for detecting mailing list messages
This module analyzes mail objects in any of the classes handled by
Email::Abstract. It returns a Mail::ListDetector::List object
representing the mailing list.
The RFC2369 mailing list detector is also capable of matching some
Mailman and Ezmlm messages. It is deliberately checked last to allow
the more specific Mailman and Ezmlm parsing to happen first, and more
accurately identify the type of mailing list involved.
This method is the core of the module. Pass it a mail object, it will
either return a Mail::ListDetector::List object that describes the
mailing list that the message was posted to, or undef if it appears
not to have been a mailing list post.
Registers a new plugin module that might recognise lists. Should
be a subclass of Mail::ListDetector::Detector::Base, and provide
the same interface as the other detector modules.
You can eval arbitrary perl code with this, so dont do that if thats
not what you want.
This module includes a number of sample emails from various mailing
lists. In all cases, mails are used with permission of the author, and
must not be distributed separately from this archive. If you believe
I may have accidentally used your email or content without permission,
contact me, and if this turns out to be the case I will immediately remove
it from the latest version of the archive.
A lot of the code applies fairly simple regular expressions to email
address to extract information. This may fall over for really weird
email addresses, but Im hoping no-one will use those for names of
The majordomo and smartlist recognisers dont have much to go on,
and therefore are probably not as reliable as the other detectors.
This is liable to be hard to fix.
Forwarding messages (for example using procmail) can sometimes break
the Sender: header information needed to recognise some list
perl(1). The Mail::Audit::List module, which is a convenient way of using
Mail::Audit and Mail::ListDetector together.
