Title: Re: [spamdyke-users] Spam rejection statistics ?
Hello, Philip.

I use /var/log/maillog file to get these numbers.
This is the file which has lines "ALLOWED or DENIED" in it.
Maybe  in  your  setup  it will be a different file, but it is the one containing lines like

Sep 11 06:07:02 mail0 spamdyke[13064]: DENIED_RDNS_MISSING from: vupywyjusu@ to: u...@mydomain.tld origin_ip: origin_rdns: (unknown) auth: (unknown)  encryption: (none) reason: (empty)
Sep 11 09:00:36 mail0 spamdyke[17404]: ALLOWED from: m...@remote.tld to: u...@mydomain.tld origin_ip: origin_rdns: xxx.remote.tld auth: (unknown) encryption: (none) reason: 250_ok_1662876036_qp_17438

you can easily get numbers of allowed and rejected emails like this:
grep ALLOWED /var/log/maillog |wc -l
grep DENIED /var/log/maillog |wc -l
