|Stripping iPhone notices from e-mails in Gnus
||[01 Sep 2009|12:47pm]
I'm not a fan of the iPhone, because of its proprietary software and
Digital Restrictions Management (DRM).
Sometimes people e-mail me from iPhones, and so I see that little
"Sent from my iPhone" note at the bottom of their messages.
While I would prefer that people change that note (if Apple allows
them to do that) to say something like, "The iPhone is Defective by
Design (http://defectivebydesign.org).", my second choice would be to
just not see the note. Fortunately, in Gnus — my favorite free
software e-mail client — it's easy to "wash" messages.
Today to my
.gnus file I added:
(banner . iphone))))
'((iphone . "\\(^Sent from my iPhone$\\)")))
Now I don't have to see those notes.
