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


     spamdb - spamd database tool


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


     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 data-
             base for WHITE entries. If any keys specified match entries al-
             ready 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 con-
             junction 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 con-
             junction with the -a or -d option.

     If adding or deleting a SPAMTRAP address (-T), keys should be specified
     as email addresses:


     Otherwise keys must be numerical IP addresses.


     If invoked without any arguments, spamdb lists the contents of the data-
     base in a text format. For SPAMTRAP entries the format is:


     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:


     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 or WHITE entries, the format is:

           type|source IP|helo|from|to|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 data-
           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>




     spamd.conf(5), spamd(8), spamd-setup(8)


     The spamdb command appeared in OpenBSD 3.5.
