       lbdb-fetchaddr - grab addresses from mails add append them to lbdb database


       lbdb-fetchaddr [-d dateformat] [-x headerfieldlist] [-c charset] [-a]
       lbdb-fetchaddr [-v|-h]


       lbdb-fetchaddr  is a shell script which reads a mail on stdin. It extracts the contents of
       some header fields (default: `From:', `To:', `Cc:', `Resent-From:', and `Resent-To:') from
       the   mail   header   (only   addresses   with   a   real   name)   and  appends  them  to
       $HOME/.lbdb/m_inmail.list.  For performance issues lbdb-fetchaddr appends new addresses to
       this  file  without  removing duplicates. To get rid of duplicates, the program lbdb-munge
       exists, which is run by m_inmail if needed and removes duplicates.

       To use this program, put the following lines into your $HOME/.procmailrc:
            | lbdb-fetchaddr

       lbdb-fetchaddr writes the actual date to  the  third  column  of  the  database  by  using
       strftime(3).   It  uses  "%Y-%m-%d  %H:%M"  as  the  default date format (e.g. "1999-04-29
       14:33"). You can change this by using the -d option to  select  a  different  date  format
       string as parameter of lbdb-fetchaddr command like
            | lbdb-fetchaddr -d "%y-%m-%d"
       which results in e.g. "99-04-29".


       -v     Print version number of lbdb-fetchaddr.

       -h     Print short help of lbdb-fetchaddr.

       -d dateformat
              Use the given date format using strftime(3) syntax.

       -x headerfields
              A  colon  separated  list  of  header  fields,  which  should  be searched for mail
              addresses.  If this  option  isn't  given,  we  fall  back  to  `from:to:cc:resent-

       -c charset
              The  charset  which  will be used to write the database. This should be the charset
              which the application expects (normally the one from your current locale).  If this
              option isn't given, we fall back to `iso-8859-15'.

       -a     Also grab addresses without a real name.  Use the local part of the mail address as
              real name.

       Most of the really interesting code of this program (namely, the RFC  822  address  parser
       used  by  lbdb-fetchaddr) was stolen from Michael Elkins' mutt mail user agent. Additional
       credits go to Brandon Long for putting the query functionality into mutt.


       The lbdb package was written by Thomas Roessler <> and is  now  maintained
       and extended by Roland Rosenfeld <>.
