DESCRIPTION

All but a few options are passed on to mixmaster as is. If you specify -m, -g, -l or -n (see mixmaster(1)) then STDIN is filtered, otherwise mixmaster is executed as is.

It is intented to be used from Mail User Agents like the mutt(1) email reader.

All other options are passed through to mixmaster.  

FILES

--configfile parameter
MIXMASTER_FILTER_CONF environment
~/.Mix/filter.conf
/etc/mixmaster/filter.conf

The first file that is found is used.  

FILEFORMAT

The configuration file for mixmaster-filter is simple. Lines with whitespace only are ignored as are lines that have the hash our pound ("#") sign as their first non whitespace character.

Lines are always truncated at the first hash our pound ("#") sign.

The first logical line gives the filtering policy. It's either "FILTER" or "ALLOW".

All other lines are taken as a list of Headers.

If your policy is "FILTER" headers in your list will get removed from messages.

If your policy is "ALLOW" only headers in your list will be passed to mixmaster.
