Customized mail-header parsers
I often get mail from IBM machines that have headers of the form
From: Zippy the Pinhead Tl 123-4567 ZIPPY@IBMmacine
I'd like to write a customized mail-header parser that grabs
"Zippy@IBMMachine" from this header. The algorithm appears simple:
look for the word " at " or "@", use the name to the left of the "@"
as the user, and the name to the right of the "@" as the machine.
ZMAIL ignores the header completely and adds the "(bad-header)"
notice to the status line whenever such a message is being reviewed.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
