Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Pyzor - perform Pyzor check of messages
Pyzor is a collaborative, networked system to detect and block spam using
identifying digests of messages.
See http://pyzor.org/ for more information about Pyzor.
- use_pyzor (0|1) (default: 1)
- Whether to use Pyzor, if it is available.
- pyzor_max NUMBER (default: 5)
- This option sets how often a message's body checksum must have been
reported to the Pyzor server before SpamAssassin will consider the Pyzor
check as matched.
As most clients should not be auto-reporting these checksums, you should set
this to a relatively low value, e.g. 5.
- pyzor_timeout n (default: 3.5)
- How many seconds you wait for Pyzor to complete, before scanning continues
without the Pyzor results. A numeric value is optionally suffixed by a
time unit (s, m, h, d, w, indicating seconds (default), minutes, hours,
You can configure Pyzor to have its own per-server timeout. Set this
plugin's timeout with that in mind. This plugin's timeout is a maximum
ceiling. If Pyzor takes longer than this to complete its communication
with all servers, no results are used by SpamAssassin.
Pyzor servers do not yet synchronize their servers, so it can be beneficial
to check and report to more than one. See the pyzor-users mailing list for
alternate servers that are not published via 'pyzor discover'.
If you are using multiple Pyzor servers, a good rule of thumb would be to
set the SpamAssassin plugin's timeout to be the same or just a bit more
than the per-server Pyzor timeout (e.g., 3.5 and 2 for two Pyzor servers).
If more than one of your Pyzor servers is always timing out, consider
removing one of them.
- pyzor_options options
- Specify additional options to the pyzor(1) command. Please note
that only characters in the range [0-9A-Za-z ,._/-] are allowed for
- pyzor_path STRING
- This option tells SpamAssassin specifically where to find the
"pyzor" client instead of relying on SpamAssassin to find it in
the current PATH. Note that if taint mode is enabled in the Perl
interpreter, you should use this, as the current PATH will have been
