DESCRIPTION

This class is a filter module class for use with Courier::Filter. It matches a message if one of the message's header fields matches the configured criteria.

Constructor

The following constructor is provided:
new(%options): returns Courier::Filter::Module::Header
Creates a new Header filter module.
 
%options is a list of key/value pairs representing any of the following options:
fields
Required. A reference to a hash containing the message header field names and patterns (as key/value pairs) that messages are to be matched against. Field names are matched case-insensitively. Patterns may either be simple strings (for exact, case-sensitive matches) or regular expression objects created by the "qr//" operator (for inexact, partial matches).
 
So for instance, to match any message from the "debian-devel" mailing list with the subject containing something about 'duelling banjoes', you could set the "fields" option as follows:
 
    fields      => {
       'list-id'    => '<debian-devel.lists.debian.org>',
        subject     => qr/duell?ing\s+banjoe?s?/i
    }
    
response
A string that is to be returned literally as the match result in case of a match. Defaults to "Prohibited header value detected: <field>: <value>".
 
All options of the Courier::Filter::Module constructor are also supported. Please see " new()" in Courier::Filter::Module for their descriptions.
