#33 Ignored messages shouldn't be ignored ;-)


Some ISP provide an interesting service by adding
[probable spam] at the beginning of some filtered
subjects. It is therefore interesting not to answer to
these mails and add them to ignorelist. It is however
possible for the ISP filter to have some false positive
and just sending mails in the void (as seen in the
askmain.py file) is therefore not advisable. I suggest
to add those mails to Junk by adding the following line:

self.msg.junk_mail("(Junk) ignored mail")

    The new version (in the CVS) supports the "--filter" command
    line switch. Basically, ASK becomes a filter and adds a
    "Spam" header to your message. You can use procmail or any
    other filter to post-process messages suspected of being spam.
