Well, we are using the 5.5 version in production since we need the spamassassin support in vdelivermail. It is (or was) production ready. I'm in charge of the 5.5 releases. Tom is working on keeping the 5.4 series clean and bug free. I usually like to use this kind of new feature in production systems for a few weeks before letting it loose on the world. It's been over a month now, so it should be good to go as a 5.5.1 release for people who need this feature. > > Rick/Ken: spamassassin processing via vdelivermail is greatly anticipated. > will vdelivermail be able to handle *filtering* as well.. or will that > have to be passed off to something like maildrop still? It calls spamd, that's it.

Plus, if the email is to be delivered to multiple people, and each person has a different spamassasssin configuration, then it might not even be possible to implement at the smtp level. Under qmail-local/vdelivermail the email is only delivered to one person at a time so each users spamassassin settings can be used. Ken
