#23 Authentication-Results: output format (permerror)


Then the Authentication-Results: is written to SYSLOG,
it is formated differently depending on the outcome of
the domainkeys test.

The normal out formated like this:
Authentication-Results: $MTA $SENDER/FROM $DK-RESULT

But if dk-filter gets a "permerror", output will
formated like this:
Authentication-Results: $MTA $DK-RESULT

Would it be possible to change the last one to:
Authentication-Results: $MTA $SENDER/FROM $DK-RESULT

where $SENDER/FROM could be set to ERROR, format error,
or equal. This would help parsing the logfiles much
(since SenderID Milter uses the same format...)

I've included a sample of the log output...

    The logging is done by libmilter, not by dk-filter, so I
    can't really fix it. However, it's only logging exactly the
    header being added to such messages, so this also means the
    header is also missing the sender/from information.

    Looked at this a little further, and the absence of such
    header information is proper since libdk reported "bad
    format". It's not possible then to report on which header
    or other message property was used to authenticate the
    message, because authentication didn't happen.

    (I didn't think of this as a bug, it was supose to be a RFE.)

    Yes, if from/sender is missing, then it's hard to add them.

    But what i meant was that if it's impossible to print
    from/sender, then print out the cause of the error something
    equal like this:

    Milter insert (1): header: Authentication-Results:
    mx1.vattenfall.se; from="can't parse From: header";
    domainkeys=permerror (bad format)

    This would violate the current format defined in section 2
    of the Authentication-Results: draft.

    (Moving this back to a Feature Request.)
