My master’s thesis has been published on Marquette’s website in its entirety. In a single sentence, I turned a Linsys router into a telephone. Since then, Kyle Persohn has expanded and improved the work I began.
I regularly use the Marquette University PrintWise Canon copiers to scan paper documents into PDF files. These files are delivered to me via email where I manually save each PDF attachment, rename it, and move it to the appropriate directory. Using Procmail and Munpack, I was able to eliminate some of the tedium of this problem.
I inserted the following block of code into my .procmailrc file. It looks for emails that were sent from me and to me by a Canon copier. When it finds one, it copes the email and pipes it to Munpack which extracts the attachments into my attachments directory.
After the attachment has been extracted, I can rename it and move it to the appropriate directory, and I still receive the email in my inbox so I know I have attachments to deal with.
I gave a presentation about Postfix to the Marquette University ACM chapter. It should be a useful starting point for configuring a Postfix mail server. I include details about much of the configuration including canonical maps which was something that I initially found difficult to figure out.
Rather than creating my presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint or OpenOffice.org Impress, I decided to check out the LaTeX Beamer package for my presentation. Since I’ve been using LaTeX for a while, it wasn’t too difficult to figure out, and it worked particularly well because most of the presentation is Postfix configuration text which I could easily include in the presentation.
The presentation is available as a PDF for download.
