DESCRIPTION

The "email plugin" opens an UNIX-socket over which one can submit email statistics, such as the number of ``ham'', ``spam'', ``virus'', etc. mails received/handled, spam scores and matched spam checks.

This plugin is intended to be used with the Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Collectd SpamAssassin-plugin which is included in contrib/, but is of course not limited to that use.

OPERATION

This plugin collects data indirectly by providing a UNIX-socket that external programs can connect to. A simple line based protocol is used to communicate with the plugin:
E-Mail type (e.g. ``ham'', ``spam'', ``virus'', ...) and size (bytes):

  e:<type>:<size>

If "size" is less than or equal to zero, "size" is ignored.

Spam score:

  s:<value>
Successful spam checks (e.g. ``BAYES_99'', ``SUBJECT_DRUG_GAP_C'', ...):

  c:<type1>[,<type2>,...]

Each line is limited to 256 characters (including the newline character). Longer lines will be ignored.
