The 2001 Perl Advent Calendar

On the 1st day of Advent my True Language brought to me..

I use Mail::Audit to filter all my mail. It gives me the flexibility of Perl, allowing me to do a great many things that would be impossible with procmail alone; For example, I create an XML file that lists the subject and sender of the last mail to I have special email addresses that I can forward messages to that kill all messages either to or from a particular address forevermore. Finally I have temporary email addresses - address that only work for one day and one day only that automatically get filtered off to /dev/null after that - very useful for site registration.
