NAME

Mail::SpamAssassin::Client - Client for spamd Protocol

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  my $client = Mail::SpamAssassin::Client->new({
                                port => 783,
                                host => localhost,
                                username => someuser});
  or

  my $client = Mail::SpamAssassin::Client->new({
                                socketpath => /path/to/socket,
                                username => someuser});

  Optionally takes timeout, which is applied to IO::Socket for the
  initial connection.  If not supplied, it defaults to 30 seconds.

  if ($client->ping()) {
    print "Ping is ok\n";
  }

  my $result = $client->process($testmsg);

  if ($result->{isspam} eq True) {
    do something with spam message here
  }

    learn

public instance (Boolean) learn (String $msg, Integer $learntype)

Description: This method implements the learn call. $learntype should be an integer, 0 for spam, 1 for ham and 2 for forget. The return value is a boolean indicating if the message was learned or not.

An undef return value indicates that there was an error and you should check the resp_code/resp_msg values to determine what the error was.
