Been trying to complete a script that I can use to grep spam emails
from the maillog, then trim it to just the plain email address. Trying
to use "cut" in the script but it's not doing what I want yet.
Here is what the earlier lines have the lines down to so far:
" (envelope-from spammer at badguy.com)" -- no quotes
...and I want this "clean" trimmed result after trim using "cut" or
anything else that works to trim/cut:
spammer at badguy.com <--- no underlines of course
That's a TAB space at beginning of the line.
The "envelope" lines are in a tmp file in colum format (one line below
(envelope-from spammer at badguy.com)
(envelope-from spammer2 at badguy2.com)
(envelope-from spammer3 at badguy3.com)
All ideas appreciated....
