Project Description

We required a script to be written to run via cron on one of our Linux servers.

The script must read through the mail log (plain text) files created by Postfix and:

1. Extract sender/recipient, size of email

2. Match sender OR recpient in MySQL database

3. Add record (log email traffic) into MySQL database

4. Create a logfile of actions


1. This script will also need to keep a record of messages/message ID so it will not duplicate if run more than once.

2. Language must be a scripting language (not compiled)

3. We will provide sample DB and log files

4. You must test on your own DB server
