I run a mail server using Dovecot and Exim. Currently mail filtering is done on a per user basis using a
.forward file in
~/ containing entires along the lines of:
if $h_to: CONTAINS "bugtraq" then save "$home/Maildir/.Mailing Lists.BugTraq/" finish endif if $h_Subject: CONTAINS "Sfic" then save "$home/Maildir/.Mailing Lists/" finish endif
And so on. This is quite tedious as it requires users to ssh in and manually write their own .forwars files. I am wondering if there are any easier or more elegant solutions to server side filtering. Are there any standards for mail clients to tell the server how to classify mail server-side?
