Thanks - not an option here since I need to allow users to opt in or out, etc. I do run with the spamc and maildrop options enabled. I know that with the spamc switch, all mail is being scanned. I’m not totally sure where vdelivermail normally throws email to qmail-inject in the delivery path, or if the maildrop patch causes maildrop to always do final delivery. If maildrop is the last thing in the chain, I’m wondering if I can short-circuit the existing forward mechanism and force a “toss this if spam flag is “YES”… Off to try to follow vdelivermail.c… :) Thanks, Charles > > Regards, > > Rick > > > > !DSPAM:53fbd92756441244418869!
