I tried to get blackhole running, but it was tough without the docs. I originally decided not to go with SA because it's written in perl, but it can be run as a daemon and there's a client written in C that actually is pretty quick. I gave up on blackhole though.. I wasn't able to get it to work, but I was also pressed for time so I didn't have too much luxury to screw around with it all that much either.

Has anyone here successfully implemented the Blackhole spam/virus blocking system using vpopmail? I've installed it on my personal server (which uses unix accounts) and it works fine. But on my vpopmail server, i'm running into an assortment of oddball problems. The support for the program is a mixed bag - the author wrote a great program, but he's weak on documentation (as he freely admits), and he doesn't have a lot of time to work on the program these days. I'm attracted to blackhole rather than spamassassin because it's written in C rather than perl, so there's lower overhead per delivery. http://www.groovy.org is the main site - i just this morning posted in the forum there, so rather than repeat the details of what i'm experiencing, you can check it out there. if anyone has any insights, i'd appreciate the assistance.....
