Re: [Evolution] copying all email addresses from a folder .. how?

I was wondering if it is possible to grab all sender email addresses
from messages that have been sent to me and are in a specific folder. I
don't want to have to go through all the messages and copy each email
address to a text file. Thanks!

Want the output in a text file? Standard UNIX tools are your friend. :-)

Collect a list of email addresses including real names, sorted

$ cd ~/.evolution/mail/local/
$ grep ^From: Inbox | sed -e "s/^From: //" | sort | uniq

This time the addresses only:

$ cd ~/.evolution/mail/local/
$ grep ^From: Inbox | sed -e "s/^.*<//" -e "s/>$//" | sort | uniq

Note, these commands only work with local mails. If you want a different
mail folder than Inbox, use the appropriate file rather than "Inbox" in
the above commands.

To redirect the output into a file in your $HOME append something like
this (starting with the ">" char) to the command. Note: This will
overwrite an existing file without warning, if you happen to have a file
with the same name already in your $HOME.

NOTE: Works for me. Use anything above at your *OWN* RISK!

Yet another note: The paths mentioned are correct for Evo 2.4.x. Don't
recall if they are exactly the same for Evo 2.0.x, which you happen to


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
