About

I created this repo when I found myself deleting a million generic task email updates from our internal tasks tool. Now, I can accomplish the same with:

python search-mail.py --subject '[tasks]' --delete-messages

And because you are a coward, I've added the ability to preview messages or view them while you do the delete with the following:

python search-mail.py --subject '[tasks]' --print-headers | grep '^Subject'

For the sanity of everyone, I'm holding the hard requirement that only standard python libraries 2.7+ will be used, so install should never be more work than a git-clone.

Pull Requests

I'm thrilled to accept pull requests. Just please don't add any external dependencies and please make it generally useful stuff.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
