What advantages do spamassasin-milter & clamav-milter have over
clamsmtp & spampd ?
If a mail contain virus or spam, and clamav or spamassasin can say big
enogh probability for that, than you don't have to accept the mail.
After the end of DATA stream, the MTA will say an 5xx error code, and the
virus/spam will not make extra load on your server/mail queue.
Check this out:
I believe I have kludged up a /etc/postfix/master.cf to have
clamsmtp & spampd configured to reject after DATA. I've set my
MUA (thunderbird) to use test server as outgoing server and
gotted immeadiate rejection when I submit EICAR test virus or
GUBE test spam.
I've not telneted to port 21 and type in commands and pasted the
test strings to be sure I'm getting REJECT ed at right time (this
is next) , but I'm pretty sure I'm getting REJECTed at right time.
So is there a particular advantage to the milters ?
