#1: Sending an E-Mail

Hi, folks,

I'd like to send a string ($line) as an e-mail from within a script.

I receive regular e-mail forwards from a college I teach at, because I
don't want to use their Outlook webmail. In the process of being
forwarded, each message gets rewritten by Outlook's webmail forwarder.

I've set up an e-mail filter (in HostMonster's cPanel) that pipes these
forwarded messages to a Perl script. The main part of the script
restores as much of the message as possible (given my very limited
knowledge of Perl). The final step I need is to send myself the restored
e-mail, the entirety of which is stored in the variable $line.

So that's my first question: how do I send the string $line -- which is
a multipart MIME message, often with one or more attachments -- as a new
e-mail to myself?

Plus, there might be a complication: three of the things I've restored
are the 'From:', 'To:' and 'Cc:' headers. Often the restored message
will, according to its header, be addressed to several people in
addition to me. How do I e-mail myself the string $line, but make sure
it only gets delivered to me and not to the other recipients in the header?

Below is the entire script for reference. The place where I want to send
$line as an e-mail is the second-to-last line.

(I should say that I have not tested this version of the script yet.
I've only been testing it with text file replicas of raw e-mails on my
computer, reading the text into the string $line, and then concluding by
printing $line in the Terminal. Also, I apologize for all the inelegance
of this code -- repeated sections instead of functions, probably sloppy
regex, and so on. This is rookie stuff.)

Looking at your code, I see that you process the E-mail message using regular
expressions. Please don't do that and use a CPAN module. Some options to
investigate are:

* http://search.cpan.org/dist/MIME-Lite/

* http://search.cpan.org/dist/Email-Sender/

* http://search.cpan.org/dist/Mail-Box/

Now some comments about your coding style:

>

1. Include a space after the "#".

2. Don't write your comments in all-capital letters.

3. One "#" instead of a quad "####" should be enough.

Together, they make your comment hard to read and obstruct the flow of the
code.

> while ( $line = <STDIN> )

Because of use strict; this won't compile because $line is used out of the
blue.

1. You're making excessive use of package-scope variables using $::var_name.
This defeats the point of using use strict. You should declare these variables
in the scope where they are needed.

2. It would be preferable to write it as:

if (my ($one, $two, $three) = $line =~ m/....))
{
$header = "$one$two$three";
}

3. What are you doing with "$1"? If you don't need it, you can use the
clustering (?:...) instead of the capturing (...).

I'm not sure I understand the admonishment. Is it that, if I use
regex to process the e-mail, then I don't *need* a CPAN module? Is it
that CPAN modules and regex don't like each other?...

I've been trying to use the second one: Email-Sender. But I can't
install it on my Macbook Pro in order to test it locally. I've tried to
install several different ways, the latest being a manual compile &
install of 'Bundle-Email'. When I tried 'make test', I got the output
below. What am I doing wrong?

No, I meant that you should use a CPAN module with a decent parsing logic,=

which will handle all the edge cases of MIME for you, *instead* of the=20
convulted parsing logic you have using regexes. Regular expressions natural=

have many valid uses, but using them to parse and process E-mail messages=20
directly is not one of them. For that, use a module.

Seems like Module::AutoInstall is kicking in here. I loath that module. You=

It seems that your path contains a whitespace, which confuses gzip that is=

not to use the system perl for active development, but instead to install a=

<rindolf> Hi all. In regards to http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=777434 (well
something similar that someone posted on
http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.beginners/ ) - what is considered the best
practice for Perl development on Mac OS X? Should Mac OS X users install their
own perl?
<dhoss> rindolf: i've heard perlbrew works okay
<dhoss> i couldn't get it working because i fucked up my build at one point
<mst> rindolf: I usually install a debian VM
<mst> OS X is a desktop OS, it's not significantly more suitable than win32
for development IME
<apeiron> rindolf, in all seriousness, macports works fine. The worst thing is
to use the system perl.
<dhoss> macports installed 5.12 alright
<ew73> rindolf: From what I've heard, perl on MacOS is sort of like perl on
RedHat. It works. but.. Um. use local::lib or perlbrew or something.

#6: Email Filter Script

Posted on 2010-10-22 09:35:19 by mark

I've been trying (and failing) to write a script that takes a forwarded
e-mail that has been altered in the forwarding process, restores that
e-mail, and then delivers the restored version to me by e-mail. I've
never programmed in Perl before this, and I'm not a professional
programmer to begin with -- have just dabbled -- and I need help.

Statement of the Problem:

I have a college e-mail account. The college uses Outlook webmail.
I hate Outlook webmail. I have multiple e-mail accounts and use one IMAP
e-mail client (Tbird) to manage them all; can't be chasing down
individual webmail accounts. However, the college Outlook account in
question is not accessible via IMAP. So I set up the Outlook account to
automatically forward all messages to one of my personal accounts.
The college's Outlook server does forward all messages, but in the
process it severely alters the messages in the following ways:
1. Replaces the Sender's address with the e-mail address
assigned to me at the college, so that the forwarded message is now from
my college Outlook address instead of from the original sender.
2. Strips out all the recipient addresses from the header (both
To: and Cc:) and replaces them with the forward-to address I provided in
the forward rule. (By the way, there are no other filter rules possible;
forwarding is my only option.)
3. Inserts "FW: " into the Subject header.
4. At the top of the message's body (both the plain text and
HTML MIME parts), the server writes the message's original header info,
presumably for my reference, in the following format:
-------------------------------------------
From: [Name of Sender]
Sent: [Date]
To: [Recipients (various formats -- see below)]
Cc: [Recipients (various formats -- see below)]
Subject: [Original Subject]
Auto forwarded by a Rule
(In the HTML part of the message, this interpolated section
includes a bunch of markup tags.)
I'll call this written-in section the Interpolated Header.
5. In the Interpolated Header, any official college e-mail
addresses are masked. A college address is normally in the form:
[Initial of FirstName][LastName]@mcc.commnet.edu
...but in the Interpolated Header this gets altered to:
[LastName], [FirstName] [Middle Initial]
So, for example, the college address:
GWillickers@mcc.commnet.edu
gets altered to:
Willickers, Golly G
6. Other address alterations:
a. In the Interpolated Header's "From: " line, a non-college
address is rewritten this way:
Golly Willickers[SMTP:GOLLY_G_WILLICKERS@DOMAIN.COM]
b. While in the "To: " line and (if it exists) the "Cc: "
line, non-college addresses appear literally:
gollygwillickers@domain.com
c. Sometimes the "To: " and/or "Cc: " lines include a
college listserv name, in this form:
MA-[Listserv Name]

That's all the damage. Thus, when I receive the forwarded message,
if I hit "Reply" or "Reply to All," I am composing a reply message to
myself (because the From: header has been stuffed by Outlook with my
college address) instead of to the sender and other recipients.

With my own web host (HostMonster.com), I can set up a user-level
filter that pipes these forwarded e-mails to a script.

Objectives of the Script:
I. Restore the forwarded e-mail.
a. Using the data in the Interpolated Header, restore the
original header info (i.e. the sender and the recipients).
1. Convert altered addresses into proper e-mail address format.
i. Properly interpret problematic names during the
conversion; for example, a last name of "St. Something", or a two-word
last name. Here are the rules applied by the college's IT dept.:
- The name Golly G. St. Willickers becomes
gstwillickers@mcc.commnet.edu.
- The name Golly G. Willi Kerrs becomes
gwillikerrs@mcc.commnet.edu.
2. Leave listserv names (e.g. "MA-Adjunct Faculty")
unrestored: I don't care about them, and will never need to include them
in my replies. I'd just as soon *not* remove them entirely, as that
could conceivably empty out the To: header entirely.
2. Remove the Interpolated Header from both the plain text and
HTML parts of the message body.
3. Remove the "FW: " from the Subject: header.
II. Deliver the restored e-mail to my forwarding address
(Mark@OCaptain.org).

I posted my first attempt at this script to this list on 10/10/10 (the
Subject was "Sending an E-mail"). It used regex indiscriminately to
parse everything, and I had no idea how to deliver the restored e-mail
(which was contained in a single string) to my forward-to e-mail account.

I still have no idea how to do this. And, much as I'm interested in
learning Perl, my non-computer work life (teaching and theatre arts)
won't give me enough time to do so sufficiently to accomplish this task.
Is there anyone who can help me with this script? If such a request is
beyond the pale for this forum, any estimate on how much it would cost
me to hire a programmer to do it, and where I'd go to do that? (That's
how much I hate using Outlook webmail.) Any advice will be dearly
appreciated.

Incidentally -- Shlomi, thank you for your replies on 10/13/10. In fact
I have a Debian-Lenny installation on VirtualBox, and was able to use
the CPAN client in there to install the Email modules. However, as you
can see, I didn't get far after that. I've also browsed the web a bit,
looking at parsing modules, as you suggested (to replace the clumsy
regex), but I just don't have the experience to be able to understand
how to use them without more serious study of the language.

- Mark

Can you create a redirection rule instead?

That excellent feature has apparently been disabled, as has any other
set up of rules and filters. Forwarding, with all the server's
alterations, is the only escape route. The Outlook software itself is
not the problem; the college's IT policies are the problem, and the
policy is the commandment, Thou shalt use Outlook webmail. The IT person
I talked to said it is done this way for security reasons: the college's
e-mail activity is isolated from the outside Internet. As far as I can
tell, you even have to be at a specially-enabled workstation in the IT
office itself to set up the automatic forwarding in the first place. I
set it up in the IT office, and since that day have not seen the
forwarding menu option in the webmail interface in any other location
either on or off campus. (Haven't been back to the IT office, as they
had minimal ability to be helpful on this issue).

I'm a computer programmer. :) I'm not suggesting you hire me or
anything like that. Just that I'd like to try to write a program for
this and if it works out then maybe you can use it. I need more
information, however.

It seems that the E-mails are piped to the script so I shouldn't need
to worry about file system IO. Correct? So basically, parse the E-mail
message from STDIN, parse the body to extract the original
information, restore the FROM, TO, CC, and SUBJECT fields; then
restore the body by extracting the "inlined headers" and then send it
off. Is that correct?

It would be nice if you could send me a complete copy (without all of
the snips) of an example E-mail, preferably with a little HTML
formatting and a meaningless attachment or two just so that I can use
it to test with. I'm not personally familiar with E-mail message
formats, etc., so I'll be relying on existing modules to do all of the
heavy lifting. ;) Perhaps you could have a colleague or student or
whatever send you a sample message (one that doesn't mind their E-mail
address being shared randomly over the Internet :P) and then send me a
full copy of that? That way I'll have an input in the correct format
to feed my script while I write it.

Brendon -

Did you get the following e-mail (with the attachment intact) at your
gmail address? I'm resending it to the list with the attachment snipped,
because apparently this list has a 50k limit.

That's it.

Re: sending the final product off -- it should only be sent to my
forward-to address, not to any other recipients named in the restored
header.

The tech support guys at HostMonster.com said to use this:

while ( $line = <STDIN> )
{
chomp $line;

# Do stuff to $line...
)

Below is a sample e-mail. This is my first semester at this
college, so I don't really know anyone yet, and I don't think I can
share anyone's actual e-mail address other than mine. However, in the
below sample I have only changed some letters in each name (each one
that isn't mine, that is), so that the format is absolutely precise.
I've also added a couple of non-college addresses that belong to me, so
that the message will contain three real, live addresses, including my
college address. In addition, I've added a "St. Paul" last name, as well
as a "Della Casa" last name, as these name patterns will crop up in some
e-mails. There is one .pdf attachment. Let me know if all this will
suffice for testing.

After the sample e-mail, I've included my original test script.
This did use I/O to read a sample e-mail text file on my local machine.
I never got to the stage of testing the script on my HostMonster server.
In this test script, all the regex processing seems to work fine,
convoluted though it may be. I include it to show you how I was working
with the consistent reformatting Outlook is imposing, plus the logic of
the altered e-mail addresses.

Enjoy!

- Mark

#11: a Loop constructing the URLs to use LWP::UserAgent repeatedly up to10 thousand times

Posted on 2010-10-23 07:16:04 by Floobee

Hello dear list good morning



I am trying to use LWP::UserAgent on the same URLs see below with different query arguments, and i am wondering if LWP::UserAgent provides a way for us to loop through the query arguments?
I am not sure that LWP::UserAgent has a method for us to do that.
I tried to figure it out. And i digged deeper in the Manpages and Howtos: we can have a loop constructing the URLs and use LWP::UserAgent repeatedly:


for my $id (0 .. 100000) { $ua->get($url."?id=21&extern_eid=".(09-$id)) //rest of the code }


Well, alternatively we can add a request_prepare handler that computes and add the query arguments before we send out the request.

Do you think that this fits the needs? look forward to your review of this issue!
greetings


What is aimed: Here on this following site we find a list of many schools: see the page with the subsequent results - approx more than 1000 sites

http://www-db.sn.schule.de/index.php?id=25


i want to fetch all the sites that are listet on this page - and therefore i want to use LWP::UserAgent; - and subesquently i want to parse them.

the sites can be reached directly - by constructing in other words the subsites of the overview can be reached via direct links... see the following.

http://www-db.sn.schule.de/index.php?id=21&extern_eid=1543

{{{

Illegal octal digit '9' at -e line 1, at end of line

}}}

So (09-$id) is wrong. What are you trying to do.

In any case, using a loop like this for that is exactly the way to do it. T=

LWP APIs do not aim to replace the functionality of the core Perl, and you =

use Perl loops to query multiple URLs. What are your reservations from usin=

Why are you hitting this website to scrape it? Do you have their
permission? Can't you get the data some other way other than generating
an entire web page (with likely a lot of common elements) just so you
can pick out the juicy bits?

This is almost always the *wrong* way to do this task, on many levels.

Thank you, Brendon, for taking a look at the script. I'd like to narrow
down the problem so I can finish some working version of this thing.

I have logic that gets the job of restoring the e-mail done, albeit
using regex in a brute force kind of way rather than parsing the message
elegantly with modules. To get a minimally working, if ugly, script I
just have to e-mail myself the resulting string ('$line'), which
contains the entire multipart MIME message as raw text, attachments
included. After looking at the online Quickstart web page for
Email::Sender (the hyperlink to the more complete manual goes nowhere),
this is what I wrote:

my $recipient = 'Mark Vecchio <MVecchio@mcc.commnet.edu>';
Email::Sender::Simple->send($line, { to => $recipient });

It doesn't work, I hope for reasons that are obvious to some of you out
there. The script does run without throwing any errors in the Terminal
I'm testing it in, but no e-mail gets sent.Toward the top of the script
I've included the lines:

use Email::Sender::Simple qw(sendmail);
use Email::Simple;
use Email::Simple::Creator;

I have no idea where to go from here. I want to e-mail the string
'$line' with all its headers -- i.e. From:, To:, Cc:, and Subject: --
intact. The To: and Cc: headers will often contain addresses other than
my own, and I don't want to send the e-mail to anyone else but me.
Anyone who can give me a snippet of code to jump start me in this final
phase will become a god in my pantheon.

- Mark

Have you looked at the documentation for Email::Sender::Simple? The
CPAN page for Email::Sender::Simple refers you to here:

<http://search.cpan.org/~rjbs/Email-Sender-0.102370/lib/Email/Sender/Manual/QuickStart.pm>

Following the sample code on that page will lead you to the following
(untested):

my $email = Email::Simple->create(
header => [ To => 'MVecchio@mcc.commnet.edu' ],
body => $line
);
sendmail($email);

Try that instead. Note that sendmail returns a true value on success
or dies on failure.
