SPAMDB(8) System Manager's Manual SPAMDB(8)

NAME

spamdbspamd database tool

SYNOPSIS

spamdb [[-Tt] -a keys] [[-Tt] -d keys]

DESCRIPTION

spamdb manipulates the spamd database in /var/db/spamd used for spamd(8).
The options are as follows:
 
 
-a keys
Add or update the entries for keys. This can be used to whitelist one or more IP addresses (i.e. circumvent the greylisting process altogether) by adding all IP addresses as keys to the spamd database for WHITE entries. If any keys specified match entries already in the spamd database, spamdb updates the entry's time last seen to now.
 
 
-d keys
Delete entries for keys.
 
 
-T
Add or delete the keys as SPAMTRAP entries. See the GREYTRAPPING section of spamd(8) for more information. Must be used in conjunction with the -a or -d option.
 
 
-t
Add or delete the keys as TRAPPED entries. See the GREYTRAPPING section of spamd(8) for more information. Must be used in conjunction with the -a or -d option.
If adding or deleting a SPAMTRAP address (-T), keys should be specified as email addresses:
spamtrap@mydomain.org
Otherwise keys must be numerical IP addresses.

DATABASE OUTPUT FORMAT

If invoked without any arguments, spamdb lists the contents of the database in a text format.
For SPAMTRAP entries the format is:
type|mailaddress
where type will be SPAMTRAP and mailaddress will be the email address for which any connections received by spamd(8) will be blacklisted if mail is sent to this address.
For TRAPPED entries the format is:
type|ip|expire
where type will be TRAPPED, IP will be the IP address blacklisted due to hitting a spamtrap, and expire will be when the IP is due to be removed from the blacklist.
For GREY entries, the format is:
type|source IP|helo|from|to|first|pass|expire|block|pass
For WHITE entries, the format is:
type|source IP|||first|pass|expire|block|pass
The fields are as follows:
type
WHITE if whitelisted or GREY if greylisted
source IP
IP address the connection originated from
helo
what the connecting host sent as identification in the HELO/EHLO command in the SMTP dialogue
from
envelope-from address for GREY (empty for WHITE entries)
to
envelope-to address for GREY (empty for WHITE entries)
first
time the entry was first seen
pass
time the entry passed from being GREY to being WHITE
expire
time the entry will expire and be removed from the database
block
number of times a corresponding connection received a temporary failure from spamd(8)
pass
number of times a corresponding connection has been seen to pass to the real MTA by spamlogd(8)
Note that times are in seconds since the Epoch, in the manner returned by time(3). Times may be converted to human readable format using:
$ date -r <value>
