Official Mirror:
Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::SAGrey is a SpamAssassin plugin that provides a limited amount of greylisting functionality using SpamAssassin's existing services. SAGrey is two-phased, in that it first looks to see if the current score of the current message exceeds the user-defined threshold value (as set in one of the cf files), and then looks to see if the message sender's email and IP address tuple are already known to the auto-whitelist (AWL) repository. If the message is spam and the sender is unknown, SAGrey assumes that this is one-time spam from a throwaway or zombie account, the SAGREY rule fires, adds 1.0 to the current message score, and optionally creates a header field in the message itself. The rulename or header field can then be used to perform additional greylisting functions (EG, having your delivery or transfer agent defer delivery), or the score by itself can be used to penalize the message. This model has two benefits over MTA-specific greylisting mechanisms: first, it only subjects probable-spam to greylisting (instead of making everybody be deferred, which has known problems), and it repurposes the existing spamassassin history database (meaning no additional databases need to be maintained). Another benefit is that it can still work at the MTA level if your MTA can call spamassassin while the transfer is active and then defer delivery based on the presence of header-field data (postfix 2.x will not do this unfortunately, since the header checks don't provide a DEFER verb), but can also be used in other models (such as delivery routines).
