# 自己的邮件地址,用于查找对方信息
ownemailadd="XXX@XXX.XXX"
# 删除临时文件
rm  ~/.mutt/cache/temp
# 将邮件内容保存至临时文件,这样的好处是能保留多行。
grep '.' $*  > ~/.mutt/cache/temp
# 找到有意义的Subject行,有的由于是转发或回复,不存在实质的subject需要排除。
subject=`cat ~/.mutt/cache/temp | grep "Subject:\|主题:" | sed -e 's/^.*: \{0,1\}//g' | \
    grep -v '^$' | head -n 1`
who=`cat ~/.mutt/cache/temp | grep "From" | head -n 1 | sed -e 's/^From: //g'`
# 检查是否是自己发的,如果是则获取收件人信息
if [[ $who == *"$ownemailadd"* ]]; then
    who=`cat ~/.mutt/cache/temp | grep "To" | head -n 1 | sed -e 's/^To: //g'`
fi
# 如有名字,则去除邮件地址
if [[ $who == *"<"* ]]; then
    who=`echo $who | sed -e 's/ *<[^ ]*>//g'`
fi
# 采用taskwarroir 增加task
# 检查是否已经存在Task,如果没有创建,则创建
n=`cat ~/.task/pending.data | grep "$who; $subject" | wc -l`
if [[ $n -eq 0 ]]; then
    /usr/local/bin/task add +email "$who; $subject"
