You are a lucky guy! ;-)

Fiddling with HTML is always fun. What about the following for a start?


--- attempt #1 follows ---

#!/usr/bin/env python
import re

class MailGrabber:
    def __init__( self ):
        self.mail_adrs = []
        self.mail_regex = re.compile( 'mailto:.*?"' )

    def handle_doc( self, s ):
        for result in re.findall( self.mail_regex, s ):
            result = result[ len( "mailto:" ) : -1 ]
            self.mail_adrs.append( result )            
grabber = MailGrabber()

f = open( 'c://tmp//namenliste.htm', 'r' )
s =

grabber.handle_doc( s )
print grabber.mail_adrs
