I have few questions on making Pythonfilter /greylist work with
Courier. I am a newbie in both areas:
I was on Macro Balmer's web site to learn about / download python
greylisting with Courier. The
web site refers to courier-pythonfilter-0.9 then pythonfilter-
greylist. Then I found pythonfilter-1.3 which
has a greylist python script. Since I am new at this, I am confused as
to which path I should take?
Alway prefer latest versions for new setups.
We want to install the pythonfilter / greylist option for Courier, but
we do not want it to be active yet. Can we do the
install "python setup.py install" without Courier knowing the
pythonfilter is installed?
In the installation guide, they explain how to setup pythonfilter.
1 - you have to create a link (in /usr/lib/courier/libexec/filters on my
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2008-07-16 18:28 pythonfilter ->
2 - you have to run: filterctl start pythonfilter.
You can do the first step. Until you do the second step, pythonfilter
won't filter anything.
