       postgreyreport - Fatal report for Postfix Greylisting Policy Server


       postgreyreport [options...]

        -h, --help                   display this help and exit
            --version                display version and exit

            --user=USER              run as USER (default: postgrey)
            --dbdir=PATH             find db files in PATH (default: /var/lib/postgrey)
            --delay=N                report triplets that did not try again after N seconds (default: 300)
            --greylist-text=TXT      text to match on for greylist maillog lines

            --skip_pool              Skip report for 'subscriber pools' ( last 2 octets of IP found in PTR name )
            --skip_dnsbl=RBL         RBL server to query and skip reporting for any listed hosts (SLOW!!)
            --skip_clients=FILE      PTR or IP or REGEXP of clients to skip in report
            --match_clients=FILE     *ONLY* report if fatal *AND* PTR/IP of client matches

            --show_tries             display the number of attempts failed triplets made in first column
            --show_time              show entry time in maillog (single line only)
            --tab                    use tabs as separators for easy cut(1)ting

            --nosingle_line          display sender/recipients grouped by ptr - ip
            --separate_by_subnet=TXT display TXT for every new /24 (ex: "=================\n" )
            --separate_by_ip=TXT     display TXT for every new IP  (ex: "\n")
            --check_sender=LIST      one or more of: mx,mx/24,a,a/24
                                     does DNS/A lookups for sender @domain and compares sending IP
                                     if match displays "MX" "A" or "MX/24" or "A/24" depending on LIST

          Note that --(skip|match)_clients can be specified multiple times and there are no default files.
          Same rules apply as postgrey's --whitelist-clients, see postgrey doc for more info.

          --skip_dnsbl can also be specified multiple times to query multiple DNSBL servers.


       postgreyreport opens postgrey.db as read-only; reads a maillog via STDIN, extracts the
       triplets for any Greylisted lines and looks them up in postgrey.db.  if the difference in
       first and last time seen is less than --delay=N then the triplet is considered fatal and
       displayed to STDOUT

       The report sorts by client IP address

       unless you are using --lookup_by_subnet or excluding all known MTA pools you will likely
       have false fatal reports for "BigISPs". A message that was tried from every IP in SMTP
       pool before making it through will show up in the report for all of the attempted source

       It is best to run postgreyreport against a maillog that is at least several hours old
       (yesterdays?)  ( you be the judge on how old is acceptable ). if you run the report
       against a live maillog you are not giving legit MTA's enough time to try again and you
       will have lots of inaccurate information.

       ·   Ex usage:

                   zcat /var/log/maillog.0.gz | ./postgreyreport [options] > postgreyreport.log


                   zcat /var/log/maillog.0.gz | \
                   ./postgreyreport --nosingle_line --check_sender=mx,a \
                   # 94 "=" total, some were omitted for clarity

       ·   Ex Output: ( POD wrapping will mess this up, view source )
