askfilter - Active Spam Killer
askfilter [--procmail] [--logfile=logfile] [--loglevel=loglevel]
Active Spam Killer (ASK) is a challenge-authentication anti-spam tool that
attempts to validate unknown senders before allowing delivery of their
message. Validation occurs by means of a challenge reply sent to senders
who are not yet known to the system. Messages are kept in a queue pending
confirmation until the sender replies to the challenge. Further messages
coming from confirmed senders are delivered immediately.
ASK expects incoming mails on the standard input and performs delivery
directly to the users mailbox, as specified in the ~.askrc
configuration file. If using the --procmail switch, ASK works as a
procmail(1) filter, delivering messages to stdout and setting the
appropriate return code for procmail.
New users should always execute the asksetup(1) bootstrap program to
create the initial ~/.ask directory and a template .askrc file.
In this mode, normal messages will be delivered to stdout and the
corresponding exit codes will be used to mark delivery or not. Use this
switch when invoking ASK from procmail(1)
