Hello all,
I have packaged <a href='' target='_blank'>spamd</a> for Freesco version 03x.
Thanks for their help and time to Dingetje and Lightning !
Spamd is a perl script that works ( and that's one of its many interest) with <a href='http://www.exim/org' target='_blank'>exim</a> (the packages version 4.20 with exiscan patch and exim 4.50). It can perform several test on emails :

- Checking if DNS resolves to a blacklisted domain
- Check for adress already known, with a white-list and a blacklist, thus autolearning from your system ( this performances improves along with time).
- Check mails with <a href='' target='_blank'>razor</a> which is also a perl script aimed at determining wether mails are comming from spammers, is also included in this package.

This version 3.0.0 also is "light" because it does not include DCCIfd and other check programs ( like Pyzord which is a python script ).
What you need :
- Perl 5.6.1 package by Dingetje, see <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>
- Exim with the exiscan patch, latest version that contain the patch is exim 4.50, see <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>
- You need also to create a custom rule in your preferred mail agent, because no mails are deleted by default, and they are marked as *SPAM* by adding it to the subject header, so you have to create a rule to put all the mails that contain the *SPAM* flag to a different location in your mail directories. This is a rather simple configuration that can include a SPAM folder to where all the mails marked as spam will be send.

What you get :
A full time working scanner against spam, and along with antivir package, against viruses.
The false positives are very few ( 97% of success with spamd).

the package is available at <a href='' target='_blank'>Freescosoft</a>.

To see how to setup exim with spamassassin, look at <a href='' target='_blank'>this</a> howto in the <a href='' target='_blank'>FREESCO DokuWiki</a>.

Any comments are welcome.
