It was spam so I have no qualms about posting it here. "Reveived?" Am I to believe that there's some Postfix version floating around out there with that typo? Of course, if Mr. Venema were so good as to provide us with anoncvs I'd go find out right now, but the prospect of downloading 12 tarballs of the source and their accompanying 20 gzip patchfiles just to do a grep filled me with sadness. What has my life come to that I actually considered doing that for a split second?
Email as a technology is a rich source of entropy. Just try to write a "simple" (heh) IMF parser and you'll see what I mean. Now I get to go change a regex, and put in a wacky comment. Oh boy.
Incidentally I wrote a spam counterattack suite this weekend. It finally made it over the annoyance threshold for me I guess. While I'm still manually classifying it by moving it into a spam folder, now there's a queue system that lifts them out of the Maildir and actually does something with the spam. In fact it does a lot of stuff with the spam, including portscan the origin ip, determine country of origin, figure out the abuse address for the ip and actually mail a polite message there with the original message attached.Posted by Alan at October 8, 2006 10:52 PM
