Projects / oSpam


oSpam is an anti-spam system based on Perl, qmail, and, optionally, vmailmgr. It features "one-day" email addresses for usenet postings: after a delay, the mails sent to your address will be put in quarantine waiting for a confirmation, or/and can be used as your main email address: all your contacts are listed in a file. If somebody which isn't in the list sends you an email, he will get a small and unique confirmation request, and then the email(s) will be delivered transparently.

        Mmm, it's the case, but only in the "one-line" description, and this one is not shown on the main page. Ok, renamed it to "oSpam for qmail". Thanks for the notice.

        Not mention about QMail
        This project does not mention that is requires QMail. I read the description and got excited thinking I could use it with my sendmail server. No such think. QMail is needed.

        Please, specify that on requirements.
