       opendkim-spam - DKIM filter spam correlation tool


       opendkim-spam [options]


       opendkim-spam  accepts a regular format message (RFC5322) on standard input and uses it to
       update a local SQL database being updated by opendkim(8) with an indiciation that  a  user
       believes the input message is spam or otherwise abusive.  This feedback is important input
       toward developing DKIM-based domain reputation systems.

       The tool is intended to be used directly from within  shell-based  mail  readers  such  as
       alpine(1)  or  mutt(1)  using  a "pipe" command, which feeds the message being read to the
       specified program.

       This tool is experimental.  If the experiment proves useful, the feedback could be used as
       an  input  stream  to  a  larger-scale  collaborative  feedback system that can be used to
       identify sources of signed mail that have good reputations.


       -b backend
              Specifies the style of backend database in use.  The default is "yes".

       -c file
              Names a configuration file from which  operating  parameters  will  be  read.   The
              configuration  file  contains entries of the form "key value", one per line.  Empty
              lines or lines beginning with a hash ("#") character  are  ignored.   Command  line
              equivalents  for  the  configuration  file are available as runtime overrides.  The
              default  configuration  file  location   is   /etc/opendkim-spam.conf.    See   the
              CONFIGURATION FILE section for a list of known values.

       -f     Run  in  the  foreground  rather  than executing as a background process.  Intended
              mainly for debugging.

       -d name
              Indicates the name of the database to be accessed.  The default is "opendkim".

       -h host
              Specifies  the  host  where  the  database  server  is  running.   The  default  is

       -o file
              Writes  an  update  record to an OpenDKIM statistics file rather than directly to a
              database.  There is no default.  Note that if this option is  used,  all  database-
              specific options are ignored.

       -p password
              Specifies the password to be used when authenticating to the database.  The default
              is "opendkim".

       -P port
              Specifies the port number where the database  server  is  listening.   The  default
              depends on which backend is in use.

       -r reporter
              Provides the name of the site reporting the spam.  If not provided, an attempt will
              be made to extract this information from the topmost Received header field from the
              input message.

       -s column
              Names  the  database  column  whose value should be incremented as a result of this
              user action.  The default is "spam".

       -u user
              Identifies the database user to be used  when  connecting  to  the  database.   The
              default is "opendkim".

       -v     Requests  verbose  output.   Can  be  specified  multiple  times  for more and more

       -V     Print version number and exit.


       The configuration file used by opendkim-spam(1) is expected to  be  a  text  file.   Empty
       lines  or  lines starting with a hash ("#") character are ignored.  All other lines should
       consist of a parameter name followed by one or more whitespace characters,  then  followed
       by its intended value.

       Parameters  generally  match  command line options (specified above), but when present the
       command line options override the configuration file options.  The list  of  configuration
       file  parameters  and  their  command  line  equivalents  are  as  follows;  see above for

              -f (opposite meaning)









              An integer that defines a number of Received fields that should  be  skipped  while
              searching for the one that was also seen by opendkim(8) so that this command refers
              to the same Received field.  Defaults to 0.



       It is possible to compile this application without SQL support, in  which  case  only  the
       StatisticsFile setting has any meaning (and, in fact, it is required in that case).
