I am not sure why my filtering isn’t working.
I have a couple email address that get nothing but spam, so I set up a filter to send anything sent to those accounts to the trash.
Thing is, that the email still gets through to me.
This is what my .procmailrc file looks like. The file was created when I set up the filters through the web page interface.
PROCMAILRC FILE GENERATED BY DREAMHOST – DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!
catch all for inbox
Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
It might be because of the way I have things setup. I use my domain to have a unique email address at sites I visit. They are not actual email accounts.
For instance, if I register at xyzwidgets.com, I will make an email address email@example.com
I have an account I created, account.
I have catch-all turned on for domain.com which forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org.
and then email@example.com forwards to myisp_email.isp.com
Confusing, I know. but I don’t want to have to create a unique user/email account for each site I visit. I also use it to track email from friends.
For instance, I tell my friend tom to email me at say firstname.lastname@example.org
That way when I scan the From field in my email program or use rules to route the mail once its on my local machine, I know I have an email from Tom.
