Default Claranet e-mail log conversion to filter?

Just posted on the off-chance that someone inventive with more skills than
me might have invented such a thing!

Has anyone mechanised a way of parsing a Clara mail log and selecting
particular lines to add to the Clara mail filter? I see it parsing into a
sort of spreadshhet where each field is either "from", "to" or "subject" and
using any of those to tune a new e-mail filter. Seems like an obvious
application - and I wish I had the skills. Similarly there must be a way of
taking Spam Killer rules and converting them to Clara mail filters.

I'm up to 80% spam killing at mail server point and trying to deal with
around 18% or so that's left!

Thanks

Have never seen mention, but consider posting in alt.internet.providers.uk
(and perhaps uk.net.providers) to see if there may be someone lurking that
has done. I divert everything that gets to the end of my filters (which I
generally use in a whitelist manner) into a Gmail account which copes with
the quantity (I think it is staying around the 60,000 mark, so 2,000 items
a day come in, and 2,000 items of spam are zapped as being 'old') so I now
glance to see if anything is being classed as spam and is wanted... in the
next few months I should reduce the numbers (by blocking at the hosting of
my various domains) much of the remaining incoming spam and then Clara can
have a bit less work to do (as spam will be sent to the electronic bit-bin
ie :blackhole: as default and not be redirected to Claranet). Peter M.

Use a Text Editor like at www.textpad.com and you can PARSE ANYTHING!

My suggestion would be to fgrep the file for these words
and then copy and paste the search results into the mail
filter file.

The power of fgrep is in its support for what are called
regular expressions. These allow you to create powerful,
specific search patterns:

For example: ^From

will search for all lines starting with the word From.

You could search the web for fgrep, or alternatively the
Zeus editor also comes with the fgrep tool:

http://www.zeusedit.com

To access the fgrep use the "Edit, Find in Files" menu and
run your search with regular expressions option enabled.

The online help also has a section that describes how to
create regular expressions.

Note: Zeus is shareware (45 day trial).
