Subject: Feedback desired about black / white listing support.
More information..: http://www.milter.info/#Support
After today's updates, I'm going to revisit the black/white listing
support used by my milters with an aim to streamline it.
Things I'll be looking at:
a) Reduce number of lookups: consider dropping support for sendmail
untagged entries, which have been deprecated by sendmail for a long
time, but haven't yet disappeared.
b) Revisit support for sendmail's Connect:, From:, To:, and Spam: tags
which are currently used for global B/W behaviour in my milters.
c) Related to b) revisit what RHS values are supported? Should RELAY
white list or be ignored?
d) Revisit pattern-lists. Are they used at all or only rarely? If so
which ones? CIDR patterns appear to be most useful, should I keep only
this one and chuck the rest?
e) Consider new tags to provide delay-check like behaviour with combo
lookups, ie. Connect:From:, Connect:Auth:, Connect:To:, From:To: I have
a very long brain storm mail about this from a private discussion to
post later about this.
I'm interested in feedback about the above or other suggestions. What
people like and don't like or suggestions as new ideas.
Remember that I chose to use the access file in order to centralise all
B/W list handling in one place rather, than in many different files that
can come from using many different filtering tools that each have their
own B/W method. So I'm not too inclined to discuss the merits of using
the access file, just what is in it.
