Over the weekend Panagiotis and I had a long chat by Skype about this
issue and I've prepared an initial update that he's testing.
There are two parts:
1. Already being tested by Panagiotis:
Added special case exception for milter-limit-rcpt-* tags: if
the per message recipient limit is exceeded, quarantine policy
is set, and -absolute-rcpt-limit set, then accept the message
and quarantine it. This changes the -absolute-rcpt-limit usage
case slightly. Requested by Panagiotis Christias.
The original intent of milter-limit-rcpt-* tags was to force
sending MTAs to do envelope splitting when only some recipients
are accepted, because spamware typically does not do envelope
splitting. But times have changed with more user accounts having
been phished such that milter-limit is being applied to outbound
filter problems as well.
2. The other is a request by Panagiotis. Whether I get that done before
or after moving house is another matter:
Limit number of rcpts over a time period per sender. Proposed new
grammar for "limit" value:
limit-list := limit ["," limit-list]
limit := number [ "/" unit ][ type ]
unit := "w" | "d" | "h" | "m"
type := "M" | "R"
