Dear Sir,

So now you equate me as one of those
bad guys sending spams?! ;)

On a serious note -  actually, no,
procmail.rc isn't cool for me. Suppose I
determine you have very interesting
things to say but there is a message
which contains a lot of the slangs that
you commonly use, such as, m**f**, fu**,
di**, ar**, et al.

I would like you to create a rule in
your badguy.rc which can filter out
this particular message but allow
everything else. Also, eliminate
messages that are irrelevant.

So, you see this can't be achieved by
filters and having a server in your
system, because a local server will
download those messages to the system,
and then the system will eliminate those
messages. Waste of bandwidth.

This can be done specifically by
Claws-mail filter, by creating
pre-processing rule, like if the body
of the message contains m**f**,
fu**, di**, ar**, (and add some
choicest of your slangs) then don't
download the message. Also, message
elimination is possible by using
keywords you used while messaging, if
those keywords are not there then don't
download messages.

I hope you can show me otherwise. Then
we could use those code-snippets.:) :D
