An AppleScript to trash empty emails
Authored by: mark hunte on Feb 27, '06 01:33:22PM

You CAN do the Mail rules, just add a 'Date sent' is 'less than' to the end of the ones rob suggests.

I get no error when I did this but as I do not get these mails I can not say if it will catch them.

An AppleScript to trash empty emails
Authored by: Peganthyrus on Feb 27, '06 02:28:19PM

I get these, and it didn't work. These blank mails are highly malformed; there <i>is</i> no To: From: or Subject: line, or in fact anything after the list of Received: lines and my mail provider's spam checking.

I was able to add a new header to check on, X-Spam-Status, and get these by doing a rule for all of "X-Spam-Status contains MISSING_DATE" and "X-Spam-Status contains MISSING_SUBJECT". Do apple-alt-u on one of these messages to see the raw text if you get them; if you're lucky, your mail provider runs antispam stuff that leaves notes, too.
