SPAMDB(8) BSD System Manager's Manual SPAMDB(8)
spamdb - spamd database tool
spamdb [[-Tt] -a keys] [[-Tt] -d keys]
spamdb manipulates the spamd database in /var/db/spamd used for spamd(8). The options are as follows: -a keys Add or update the entries for keys. This can be used to whitelist one or more IP addresses (i.e. circumvent the greylisting process altogether) by adding all IP addresses as keys to the spamd data- base for WHITE entries. If any keys specified match entries al- ready in the spamd database, spamdb updates the entry's time last seen to now. -d keys Delete entries for keys. -T Add or delete the keys as SPAMTRAP entries. See the GREYTRAPPING section of spamd(8) for more information. Must be used in con- junction with the -a or -d option. -t Add or delete the keys as TRAPPED entries. See the GREYTRAPPING section of spamd(8) for more information. Must be used in con- junction with the -a or -d option. If adding or deleting a SPAMTRAP address (-T), keys should be specified as email addresses: email@example.com Otherwise keys must be numerical IP addresses.
If invoked without any arguments, spamdb lists the contents of the data- base in a text format. For SPAMTRAP entries the format is: type|mailaddress where type will be SPAMTRAP and mailaddress will be the email address for which any connections received by spamd(8) will be blacklisted if mail is sent to this address. For TRAPPED entries the format is: type|ip|expire where type will be TRAPPED, IP will be the IP address blacklisted due to hitting a spamtrap, and expire will be when the IP is due to be removed from the blacklist. For GREY or WHITE entries, the format is: type|source IP|helo|from|to|first|pass|expire|block|pass The fields are as follows: type WHITE if whitelisted or GREY if greylisted source IP IP address the connection originated from helo what the connecting host sent as identification in the HELO/EHLO command in the SMTP dialogue from envelope-from address for GREY (empty for WHITE entries) to envelope-to address for GREY (empty for WHITE entries) first time the entry was first seen pass time the entry passed from being GREY to being WHITE expire time the entry will expire and be removed from the data- base block number of times a corresponding connection received a temporary failure from spamd(8) pass number of times a corresponding connection has been seen to pass to the real MTA by spamlogd(8) Note that times are in seconds since the Epoch, in the manner returned by time(3). Times may be converted to human readable format using: $ date -r <value>
