Modifying outbound e-mail?

software development

#1

Good evening.

Is it possible, using Procmail (or something similar) to automatically modify outbound e-mail messages? I subscribe to several lists which only accept mail with registered sender addresses, and it’s a pain to try to remember to specify the correct sender for each list when I post. I’d like to set up some rules to apply the correct sender address automatically.

Thanks

This is a very good idea. I think it should be possible, but haven’t tried it. If you have some luck, please let us know. I found some stuff by searching the web, but nothing specific to DreamHost.


They need more support help.
Pay me (and DreamHost gets 5%+$0.30) Cut the code: [color=#00CC00]9999=$99.99 Off[/color]

Well, it looks like this would probably require modification of the MTA configuration, and I suspect that Dreamhost wouldn’t want to let me do that.

I’m thinking that I might be able to do this by writing a simple Perl server that would run as an SMTP proxy on localhost. It would pass most traffic along as-is, except for modifying the outbound sender information as needed. Shouldn’t take too much code…
