  • Great article.

    So is there a way to have the speed of using spamc while using Mail::Audit? Would simply switching to pperl work?


    • There's no reason that you couldn't switch to pperl and get most of the benifits of spamc. I think the author uses it (on an industrial scale) for the same stuff (or so he admits here [].)

      I use procmail over Mail::Audit these days because I've found it to be more reliable - that's not to say I still don't use perl to do most of my mail filtering. Here's the bottom of my procmail script:

      WHERE=`where_to_guv ${MAILDIR} ${DEFAULT}`

      where_to_guv is a pperl script that just prints out the name of the mbox where my mail is to be filtered into. So I still get to use Mail::ListDetector and all the other nice Perl utilities that I use with Mail::Audit - I just don't get Mail::Audit to do my actual mail delivery anymore.
