I have a script which sends the Subject and From fields from every
mail to /dev/console, it's run for every mail I receive. You can
usually tell what list it's from, as ILUG mails have an [ILUG] in the
subject line etc.
I call the script from the .forward file, my .forward looks like this:
% cat ~/.forward
"|IFS=' '&&exec /usr/bin/procmail -f-||exit 75 #padraig"
The first line is a call to procmail, the second sends the e-mail through
my vbiff script, which basically greps out the From and Subject fields and
sends them to /dev/console. It looks like this:
% cat ~/bin/vbiff
echo new mail received at `date` > /dev/console
formail -z -XFrom: -XSubject: > /dev/console
Then you can see it by running an xconsole, which looks like this:
