comment Is there a way to automatically extract (e.g. regex) information (e.g. prices) from emails (e.g. on Gmail)?
What machine/device would you like to find the regex and send the content to IFTTT? In other words, where would you like to process the email filter?

comment Is it possible to bulk edit all my Facebook posts?
Facebook has an API or you could use something like iMacros to script a solution (after paging all the way down on your "activity" page)

Google used to intentionally not display inlined images in webmail for security purposes. I believe they have now changed this policy.

comment Searching for populations of a list of cities
You might want to play around with a db I created from the geonames.org data. Sample query: 69d09f284af2d9321d9a6863d0defa2d.geonames.db.barrycarter.info This isn't very detailed, includes cities whose alternate name is Alexandria, and exposes a duplicate in the geonames.org database.

comment Gmail web says “not sent to spam”, downloaded version doesn't
No, no. Your suggestion was good, thank you. I just meant that this is getting to be too much work (for me <G>) for something that I thought was simple.

OK, I've actually done this by pulling "[Gmail]/Spam" in my getmail rc file. However, I dislike pulling to multiple folders, especially when all my labelled messages are also in INBOX.

Wow. I use getmail myself. I'm guessing this is a special Thunderbird feature, not part of the IMAP spec (as you note).

OK, I tried this. The label shows up in webmail, but not in the IMAP-downloaded version of the email. I was hoping for an "X-Label:" header, but no such luck.

It's not 100% automatic, but you could try iMacros?

Right, but the fact that gmail originally labelled it spam and then moved it to inbox due to a filter is lost forever (unless gmail has filter logs, which I don't think it does)

Thanks, this is what I thought. If I delete the message permanently from the web interface, the information really is lost? Since my only copy (the IMAP copy) won't have it?

Felt horribly kludgy, but took a shot at it.
