Thanks for the reply. Yes, I know about .qmail files but the problem how
to *drop* unwanted mails. I can check the mails against a sample.txt
file and if match is found redirect it to ./Maildir/. But how to drop
the mails otherwise?
Also should i just check the From: field or is there anything else I
should check for (against the database, maybe using egrep)
