I use Evolution as my email client and have a directory for incoming mail from a particular feedback form. I would like to create a listing or database of the addresses. I can export the file in mbox format but can anyone assist with suggestions for creating the listing/database?

TIA
Mike Davies

Code:
grep '^From:' mboxfile | cut -c 7-


Will extract all the addresses fro the mbox file, assuming you trust the From addresses. otherwise use Sender:.
