The example I based my code on used spaces, so it's presumably ok.

the TO_ command apparently encompasses multiple "to" type headers. To:, Apparently-To:, CC:, etc.

I guess it remains to try it and test it.


Looks like the spaces make it not work. I got rid of them and it seems ok though!

Still makes me a bit nervous. I'd rather it was scanning ALL headers for the addresses, just in case. Maybe it is. I find the man page a bit too... arcane for my easy comprehension. I don't speak very good *nix I guess.


Well, if you want it scan all headers, then you can do that. You simply create the search expression without specifying the fields to look in. That is, "^To:" means "the line starting with To:" I believe you can negate that segment, and it will search the entire header.


Actually, I think I've figured it out. Don't put anything at all for a header (IE, just * and then your match terms) and it'll search em all.  So far, it's working like a charm.
