>From the [postfix-users] list as of this morning:
"I won't be able to hack Postfix for a few days but here is what I
intend to add shortly.
- SMTPD policy delegation, where
- The SMTP server sends a tuple with (client_address, client_name,
helo_name, sender, recipient).
- The SMTP server expects a reply that specifies an action.
Initially the action will be (any valid SMTPD access map
lookup result, defer_if_reject+text, defer_if_permit+text).
- A sample delegated SMTPD policy application in the form of a
trivial greylist server.
The delegation protocol is simple enough that one could implement
their own delegated policy daemon in a PERL script."
No ETA for the changes but it's promising news nonetheless.
