A delicious.com to email gateway

It is intended to be run about hourly. All new links with a specified tag are mailed to an address.


The first few lines of the del2mail script contain its configuration:

  • USER: the user whose links are read or all users if left empty
  • TAG: the tag the links must have
  • MAIL_SERVER: the name or IP address of the SMTP server
  • RECIPIENTS: a list of mail recipients
  • SENDER: the mail address of the sender. If the mail goes to a mailing list, make sure that the sender is allowed to send to the list. The name of the sender will always be the delicious.com user name of the link submitter.

The script writes to /var/local, so make sure that the user as which the script runs has write permissions there.
