  Mood:midnight coding
  Music:Rush - Limelight

I finally had some time to work on the email whitelist filtering system tonite. I have the filtering stuff in place, which means one thing... I need to put the email address of anyone who might ever send me an email on my whitelist!


You'll get a bounce message, but rest assured, your email will get to me, and it'll be logged with the time and date in the whitelist log file, too.

(If you're curious about the details... You put this:

"|IFS=' '&&exec /home/mackys/whitelist/checkwl.pl >> /home/mackys/whitelist/wl.log ||exit 75 #mackys"

in the .forward file in your homedir, and the perl script does the rest.)

Edit: Whitelist has been updated for all emails received at or before 2pm MDT, 10/26. Wait, make that 2:30 pm MDT cuz I just got your email, Bill.

Sent. You wanna use gully.org or host another domain on the box? cantrick.* is available. Or something more colorful to confound your adoring rioting public?

The whitelisting system doesn't give a damn what MY email address is, only the email address that a message is from.

I'll get around to putting up cantrick.net, but the whitelist comes first.
