Simple Syntax, reads messages every 10 minutes and output them to events.txt, log.txt and also own csv file It deletes any Trade or Reinforcement messages it finds leaving the others still available

   <serverStrategy class="AutoReader" desc="Read Messages" minPauseMinutes="10"	enabled="true"	uid="rmss">
			<output append="true" format="log+event+csv" />
                        <delete type="trade+rein" /> 

Complex Syntax with event message sending

It reads only attack reports and sends messages according to the type of report.

It also deletes without reading any Trade or Reinforcement Messages

Therefore scout messages will remain unread

	<serverStrategy class="AutoReader" desc="Read Messages"		minPauseMinutes="10"	enabled="true"	uid="ukxssrp">
		<output append="true" format="event+attack" />
                <delete type="trade+reins" /> 
                <item	title="attacked"	name="report"	id=""	msgTitle="lost defenders at %s"	msgText="incoming"		desc="send message if attacked and lose troops" />
                <item	title="farmed"		name="report"	id=""	msgTitle="lost res at %s"		msgText="we should build a cranny"	desc="send message if attacked and lose res" />
                <item	title="dodged"		name="report"	id=""	msgTitle="no losses at %s"		msgText="missed"	desc="send message if attacked with no impact" />
                <item	title="casualty"	name="report"	id=""	msgTitle="lost attackers at %s"		msgText="build more"	desc="send message if lose some on attack" />
                <item	title="empty"		name="report"	id=""	msgTitle="empty"		msgText="dont attack there again"	desc="send message if empty attack" />

As a protection from flooding with IGM a message is only sent once for a report relating to a title of that type. However an item line can be included more than once so that a “farmed” item could be included 5 times which would generate 5 messages. I would suggest with slightly different text so the last one could say “oh no not again”
