maildirproc is a program that processes one or several existing mail boxes in the maildir format. maildirproc is primarily focused on mail sorting � i.e., moving, copying, forwarding and deleting mail according to a set of rules.

It can be seen as an alternative to procmail, but instead of being a delivery agent (which wants to be part of the delivery chain), maildirproc only processes already delivered mail.

Installation:

maildirproc has no other dependencies than a working Python 2.4 (or higher) on a Unixish system. No special installation is needed; just copy the maildirproc file to a suitable place and run it.

You can run maildirproc in several diffent ways, e.g.:

- Manually: You could, for example, run

maildirproc --once -r foo.rc -b . -m Maildir

to apply the program in foo.rc once on a maildir directory called Maildir in the current directory.

- By cron: Put a row like

* * * * * maildirproc --once

in your crontab to run maildirproc each minute (using the default RC file ~/.maildirproc/default.rc).

As a long-running process: Just start maildirproc (without the --once flag).

Using some service supervision framework, for example runit.
