NAME

"razor-report" - Razor Reporting Agent

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    razor-report [options]  file_with_mail_in_rfc822_format

    $ cat mail | razor-report
    $ razor-report ./mail
    $ razor-report -d ./mail



DESCRIPTION

razor-report is the Razor Reporting Agent which is used for reporting spam messages to a Razor Nomination Server. razor-report should be generally called from a MUA, although there are no restrictions on invoking it from the command-line. razor-report is a filter, which means that spam messages should be piped through it. By default, razor-report backgrounds and detaches itself from the control terminal at start-up.

If razor-report is passed more than one mail, it will report each against the database. Please use this with caution, we don’t want the database filled up with mails incorrectly identified as spam. razor-report supports mbox-formatted files with 1 or more mails in them as well as files containing a single RFC 822 (non-mbox) mail. More than one file may be present on the command line, can be either a non-mbox or mbox in any order.

However, more than one non-mbox mail cannot be read from stdin. Both razor-report and razor-revoke(1) require user authentication to work, see razor-admin(1). This allows the Razor Nomination Server to keep track of how many messages a user reports and revokes. The more messages a user correctly reports and/or correctly revokes, the more trust the user earns. Likewise, when messages are incorrectly reported or revoked, the trust goes down for that user. Highly trusted users will have the most affect on the Razor Catalogue.

USAGE

razor-report takes following arguments:
-h Print a usage message and exit.
-v Print the version number and exit.
-d | --verbose Print debugging information to stdout.
-debuglevel=n | -dl=n Set debug level to ’n’. Default is 3 without -d option, 9 with.
-whitelist=file Specify file to use for whitelisting. Overrides ’whitelist’ option in razor-agent.conf.
-s Simulate a check. Do everything except talk to the server.
-conf=filename Specifies an alternate configuration file. If not specified, it is computed, see razor-agents(1) manpage for details. See razor-agent.conf(5) manpage for various configuration options. The default is <razorhome>/razor-agent.conf.
-home=dir Specify razorhome directory. This is where the configuration file, logfiles, identities, and server files live. If not specified, it is computed, see razor-agents(1) manpage for details.
-logfile=file Specify file to log to instead of whats in configuration file. The default is <razorhome>/razor-agent.log.
-ident=filename Specify an identify file to use for authenticating with Razor Servers. If not specified, <razorhome>/identity-<user> is used.
-rs=razor.server.com Use this Razor Nomination Server instead of reading servers.nomination.lst.
-H Compute and print the signature of the mail contents and exit. If -e=integer is not specified, all supported engines will be used.
-S=string Accept a list of pre-computed (with -H) signatures on the command line, instead of computing one from mail content. Signatures can be submitted in hex or base64, but base64 is preferred. Requires -e=integer. Usage:

razor-report -e 1 -S a8a3d545adb73f9733675571ffeaf10cba87745b

-e=integer Specify engine used to create signatures. Must be 1, 2, 3, or 4 in this version. Engine 1, or -e=1, is used for Razor 1.x signatures. Used only with -S=string or -H.
-ep4=string String used by engine 4 when computing signatures. Published by the Razor Nomination Servers and updated very frequently. Used only when -e=4.
-i=filename Use identity from filename instead of reading <razorhome>/identity. Razor Servers compute trust for each unique identity. Razor Agents figure out the identity by a 2 step process. First, check if identity is specified via cmd-line (-i=file). If not there, then look in <razorhome> for identity file. If <razorhome> has no identity file, authentication will fail - you cannot report or revoke. See razor-agents.conf(5) for more on <razorhome>. ---fixme----
-a Authenticate only. If authenticated, exit 0; if not, exit 1.
-f Stay in foreground, do not detach and run in background.

INTEGRATION WITH MUTT

Add the following line to mutt.conf



     macro index S "|/usr/bin/razor-report"



Then press S on the spam message in mutt to report it with razor-report. Since razor-report forks, the control will return immediately.
