On this topic, I would love a little bit more data in the database --
namely a message-level table that would enable me to do more reporting.
Would like to have a second table that would record
- tempfail? (0 or 1)
- current blocked_count (1 on first attempt)
- current passed_count (1 on first success)
- time from create_time (seconds)
This would enable analysis of spam patterns, spam and legitimate retry
patterns, and general mail traffic analysis -- with potential for
further future enhancement of greylisting techniques.
Yes, all this is possible by writing scripts to analyze the log files,
but I would rather not start messing with logs that were not meant for that.
Evan, I would be happy to enhance relaydelay.pl to do this if you are
willing to incorporate the code into the main codeline. Please let me
know whether (1) this seems like a reasonable idea, or whether (2)
something similar is already in the works.
