  Signal Spam plugin for Evolution

"Signal Spam" is a French association aiming at fighting spam. It gathers some governmental agencies, some companies (including Microsoft), ... Currently they collect spam to study it and when you register you can tell if you would accept to go to justice.

There are currently 3 ways to send them a spam :

  • Use the web form (I can't imagine someone receiving an usual amount of spam doing this)
  • Use the provided Outlook plugin
  • Use the provided Thunderbird extension
.

As I use evolution, I decided to write a plugin. The version 0.0.1 is really alpha but I have been using it for a few days and at least it does not crash :)

It lacks i18n, some error reporting, an icon for the menus and some features but it allows you to select one or several mails and send them which is the main intended functionality.

Suggestions and patches welcome !

While doing so I had to learn e-passwords, e-plugin, camel-stream-mem, and some other parts of Evolution API and could commit minor fixes to the documentation. After a lot of reading of the existing plugins source, I think that would be nice to have some simple sample plugin to start with.

Update: Here comes 0.0.2 as I found a leak in 0.0.1 :)
