Counting receipts in email through script file



  • Hi,

     In my sorority we have a bit of a "To"/"Cc" spam. (some commision sending their promotional stuff to everyone and everyone replying to that, etc.)

    I want to limit the number of receipts (not BCC) on our mailing lists to 5, otherwise bounce the mail (send a message: use bcc for more than 5 recepients). I think I can use the formail utility, but I still need a way to count the receipients.

    Can anyone give an example on how to do this?

    In /etc/aliases it could be defined as following:

    [code]
    somemailinglist: "| /usr/bin/filter_mail.sh 5 | ecartis -s somemailinglist"
    [/code]

    In America, Sororities are all girl.  I always thought you were a dude.  Have you been lying to me all this time?



  •  Ahh, ofcourse I mean fraternity for me. In the netherlands allmost all are mixed though, I think that would make them...sorternities? frarorities?

    If they were mixed in America, we'd call them hotspots for fetal alcohol syndrome, or, as I like to think of them, conscript factories.



  •  Little-to-none pregnancy in dutch students, but maybe that would be different in America.

     Also, can anyone help me with the problem now? :P

    Mine was called a "co-ed literary society". Of course, we were the nerd house.
