Similar to dspam-spamd, this is a small program to run from (x)inetd that acts as a spamd-compatible frontend for crm114.

I use this in my exim installation to integrate spam scanning with crm114 within the SMTP transaction, hence the frontend is actually the minimal implementation to work with exim, see the README for more information.


Since I run this as a local daemon, it checks if the user is allowed to filter, to see which user is connecting it requires building with libident and having an ident daemon running. Debian-exim and root are hardcoded to allow filtering for everyone, all others need use their own username.
