Currently, I am working with 289 .qmail-xxx Files :-)
Most of them look like
(block is a spam-control script)
Some of them have no block (mailinglists about spam etc.),
some go to plain mbox files.
I' like to convert most of these to a central .mailfilter file
and am now looking for suggestions. I plan to use a
central .qmail-default file and "import EXT".
a) use a huge if cascade (naaah)
b) include a conf file for each list
c) use a few separate files and pattern matching, or
d) do something completely different.
I also came upon a few difficulties:
This list seems to suggest I just put "|maildrop" in
my .qmail-default. Problem:
1. I don't get the correct envelope sender (qmail-local leaves it in $SENDER)
2. Even if I got it, maildrop doesn't seem to generate a Return-Path: header,
as mandated by RFC 2821.
Currently I use "|preline -f maildrop".
Next problem is, how does maildrop handle the envelope sender in forwarding
situations? It seems, without preline, I get "list" semantics (errors go to me),
with preline, I get forward semantics (thanks to qmail-inject), errors go to
the original sender. Is there any way to control this?
Thanks for any help
