       Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DCC - perform DCC check of messages


         loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DCC

         full DCC_CHECK        eval:check_dcc()
         full DCC_CHECK_50_79  eval:check_dcc_reputation_range('50','79')


       The DCC or Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse is a system of servers collecting and
       counting checksums of millions of mail messages.  The counts can be used by SpamAssassin
       to detect and filter spam.

       See for more information about DCC.

       Note that DCC is disabled by default in "v310.pre" because its use requires software that
       is not distributed with SpamAssassin and that has license restrictions for certain
       commercial uses.  See the DCC license at for

       Enable it by uncommenting the "loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DCC"
       confdir/v310.pre or by adding this line to your local.pre.  It might also be necessary to
       install a DCC package, port, rpm, or equivalent from your operating system distributor or
       a tarball from the primary DCC source at See also


       The following tags are added to the set, available for use in reports, header fields,
       other plugins, etc.:

         _DCCB_    DCC server ID in X-DCC-*-Metrics header field name
         _DCCR_    X-DCC-*-Metrics header field body
         _DCCREP_  DCC Reputation or percent bulk mail (0..100) from
                     commercial DCC software


       use_dcc (0|1)       (default: 1)
           Whether to use DCC, if it is available.

       dcc_body_max NUMBER
       dcc_fuz1_max NUMBER
       dcc_fuz2_max NUMBER
           Sets how often a message's body/fuz1/fuz2 checksum must have been reported to the DCC
           server before SpamAssassin will consider the DCC check hit.  999999 is DCC's MANY

           The default is 999999 for all these options.

       dcc_rep_percent NUMBER
           Only the commercial DCC software provides DCC Reputations.  A DCC Reputation is the
           percentage of bulk mail received from the last untrusted relay in the path taken by a
           mail message as measured by all commercial DCC installations.  See
  You "must" whitelist your trusted relays
           or MX servers with MX or MXDCC lines in /var/dcc/whiteclnt as described in the main
           DCC man page to avoid seeing your own MX servers as sources of bulk mail.  See
  The default is


       dcc_timeout n       (default: 8)
           How many seconds you wait for DCC to complete, before scanning continues without the
           DCC results. A numeric value is optionally suffixed by a time unit (s, m, h, d, w,
           indicating seconds (default), minutes, hours, days, weeks).

       dcc_home STRING
           This option tells SpamAssassin where to find the dcc homedir.  If not specified, try
           to use the locally configured directory from the "cdcc homedir" command.  Try /var/dcc
           if that command fails.

       dcc_dccifd_path STRING
           This option tells SpamAssassin where to find the dccifd socket instead of a local Unix
           socket named "dccifd" in the "dcc_home" directory.  If a socket is specified or found,
           use it instead of "dccproc".

           If specified, "dcc_dccifd_path" is the absolute path of local Unix socket or an INET
           socket specified as "[Host]:Port" or "Host:Port".  Host can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address
           or a host name Port is a TCP port number. The brackets are required for an IPv6

           The default is "undef".

       dcc_path STRING
           Where to find the "dccproc" client program instead of relying on SpamAssassin to find
           it in the current PATH or "dcc_home/bin". This must often be set, because the current
           PATH is cleared by taint mode in the Perl interpreter,

           If a "dccifd" socket is found in "dcc_home" or specified explicitly with
           "dcc_dccifd_path", use the dccifd(8) interface instead of "dccproc".

           The default is "undef".

       dcc_options options
           Specify additional options to the dccproc(8) command.  Only characters in the range
           [0-9A-Za-z ,._/-] are allowed for security reasons.

           The default is "undef".

       dccifd_options options
           Specify additional options to send to the dccifd daemon with the ASCII protocol
           described on the dccifd(8) man page.  Only characters in the range [0-9A-Za-z ,._/-]
           are allowed for security reasons.

           The default is "undef".

       dcc_learn_score n        (default: undef)
           Report messages with total scores this much larger than the SpamAssassin spam
           threshold to DCC as spam.
