Export BBDB contacts to gmail filter import XML

Project description

Introduction

This package installs a command-line python script and an emacs command for exporting a GMail filters Atom feed from the gnus-public and gnus-private fields in BBDB.

Installing

The package can be installed using the standard python package installation procedure. Extract the tarball, then run the following command inside the extracted directory:

$ python setup.py install

This will install the command-line utility and the bbdb-gmail-filter.el emacs library. Then add the following to your ~/.emacs:

(require 'bbdb-gmail-filter)

Usage

Once installed, the filters can be exported to a file simply by calling M-x bbdb-export-gmail-filters. You will be prompted for a file to export the filters to.

For every BBDB record that has a value in the gnus-private field, a filter will be included that matches the “To” GMail filter field on any BBDB net addresses for that record and applies the label specified in the gnus-private field value. The same is done for BBDB records with values in the gnus-public BBDB field but filters on the “From” GMail filter field instead.
