Description Daniel Keyhani 2010-01-06 15:40:07 UTC
The spamass-milter does not allow for clients with dynamic IP addresses, authenticating via SMTP AUTH. The attached patch adds a command line switch "-A" to the milter, which passes mails from clients that have successfully SMTP AUTHed without further scanning. It also patches the manpage and usage info to reflect this change. The attached ebuild (r4) applies this patch to the source during the build.

Equivalent patches have been submitted upstream multiple times, however the project seems to be dead (no updates since 2006).

Reproducible: Always

Patch to add "-A" switch

This patch adds above mentioned "-A" option to spamass-milter, the use of which causes it to not scan mail from SMTP AUTHed clients.

Ebuild which applies the above patch.

This ebuild adds the src_unpack() function to patch the source with the above patch. It is otherwise identical to r3.
