What email address sends 'updates' on WebmasterWorld
I don't appear to be getting mine....

Is it still <snip>?

I'm not getting email updates so maybe it's changed and I'm filtering it out by mistake?

For thread posts it's <snip>, Nick. Is that what you wanted?

Yes, thanks, I've been filtering them out!

Cheers Marcia, is there a different one for email updates on a forum or is it the same?

That's not garanteed.

btw: anything that doesn't look like a bounce on that email, automagically gets forwarded to abuse@senders'isp.com

The filter to use is on the header line xmailer.

"X-Mailer: WebmasterWorld"

Thanks brett, I'm hopeless at procmail, could you give me the recipe?

If you want to simply bypass all other filtering for those notifications, then you can insert the following rule near the top of your .procmailrc file:

# free pass for WebmasterWorld notifications
:0
* ^X-Mailer: WebmasterWorld
$DEFAULT

Obviously, this assumes that your procmail is configured correctly and the $DEFAULT variable points to your standard mailbox.
