I was at some point doing the "smarter filtering", i.e. each list to its own folder, but eventually found out that it's better to combine the whole thing, which is what I do now. I also managed to figure out that it's better to put stuff that doesn't pass through the list, but has a Cc: some-list header, in the same folder; that way, duplicates (of which I do get a few) are easier to handle. (You can choose to remove dupes by telling Majordomo not to send you mails that have you on Cc:, but I've found that I lose some people's emails due to my own spam filtering.) I have on my TODO to have procmail throw away an email that it already delivered (e.g. by comparing Message-Id's), so if someone has a solution to that I'd like to know. -- Alvaro Herrera http://www.CommandPrompt.com/ PostgreSQL Replication, Consulting, Custom Development, 24x7 support ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 3: Have you checked our extensive FAQ? http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faq
