Creating database of email addresses.

Postby mikejd » Fri Jun 17, 2005 3:40 pm

I use Evolution as my email client and have a directory for incoming mail from a particular feedback form. I would like to create a listing or database of the addresses. I can export the file in mbox format but can anyone assist with suggestions for creating the listing/database?

Code: Select all
grep '^From:' mboxfile | cut -c 7-

Will extract all the addresses fro the mbox file, assuming you trust the From addresses. otherwise use Sender:.
