The answer to your question is yes. To elaborate a bit more however here is a personal document I wrote (i.e. wasn't intended for anyone else), hopefully it provides you with good enough information and/or the information you were looking for. Mind you, this is BSD and qmail (yes, I'm a fanboy) specific. This assumes you are familiar with the software I decided to use under the components heading. Certainly feel free to ask any questions. I realize the document isn't "production quality" due to the reasons given about, but rest assured I can vouche for this method.

Additionally note, this is obviously not the only method.....just that it's my method. ;P Cheers!



I have 5 machines behind a load balancer, one of which is FBSD 4.11, and the other 4 are FBSD 6.2. The component list I used is as follows:


qmail w/ QMAILQUEUE patch
*custom c scripts  (These are optional; one is provided)


This is the current flow of any emails that reach the cluster. Note the items listed within *'s are custom programs and explained later in this document:


**Note :: reject_spam is included because that is needed for denying emails. (You could rewrite it in perl or sh if you needed to)


The installation for any new and existing proxy boxes is extremely straightforward.

For all but qmail listed above, use the ports tree.

Setup spamd to create the /tmp/.spamd.sock socket. That's what I call mine, yours can/will vary.

Once all this is installed, create /etc/tcp.smtp with the following entry and build the cdb file:

Ensure tcpserver uses that file(i.e. -x)

While in /usr/ports/qmail.....

a) upload the attached files (patch-qmail.c and patch-Makefile) into ./files/

 b) edit patch-qmail.c to reflect a message you would like to give.
'+ case 20: return "DAnti-SPAM Threshold Reached see";;'

 c) type: make extract

 d) type: make patch

 e)  copy the attached file (reject-spam.c) to ./work/qmail*/

f) Now, I haven't included some of my patches here do to sensative information. Therefore, you'll need to edit the Makefile (work/qmail-*/Makefile) to removed any and all references to check_block and reject-record-spam.

 g) type: make install

 h) copy reject-spam to /var/qmail/bin

i) Copy the attached shell script (qmail-queue-spam) to /var/qmail/bin/; that is going to tie this together.

Please note that it's NECESSARY to use the local software FW to allow relaying. IPFW is a good choice (my preference anyways). Deny everything to port 25, and only allow the hosts you want. I found this to be the easiest.
 Then on those hosts, smarthost the "hidden" (not really) machine.

My attached c file got stripped.  Here is it.

#include "stralloc.h"
#include "substdio.h"
#include "readwrite.h"
#include "getln.h"
#include "str.h"

stralloc s = {0};
substdio i = {0};
substdio o = {0};

char ibuf[1024];
char obuf[1024];

int main(void){

       int match;


               if(getln(&i,&s,&match,'\n') == -1) _exit(81);
               if(!match || s.len == 1) break;
               if(!str_diffn("X-Spam-Flag: YES\n", s.s, s.len)) _exit(20);
