Mutt Macro: Mass-Delete System Spam
I just added this to my
macro index Z '<tag-pattern>~f (cron\|nagios\|root)<enter><tag-prefix-cond><delete-message>'
Now if I hit shift-z, all the mail from cron, nagios, and root is marked deleted. If I’m feeling aggressive I can then hit x, which for me means “expunge” deleted messages. (I came from pine.)
