DNSBL "Speculative" Mode

Post by RollerNetSupport » Tue Dec 14, 2004 3:03 pm

In what only amounts to an oversight on my part, the DNSBL "Speculative" mode will now append a header to the email if it finds a match in any lists specified. The following has been added to the help page for DNSBL:

In "Speculative" mode we will add a X-RollerNet-DNSBL header if a DNSBL match was found; the message will not be rejected. If you have filtering software looking for headers, here's an example of the header that will be added:

X-RollerNet-DNSBL: 222.101.15.127 found in xbl.spamhaus.org with reason 127.0.0.4

The speculative mode header will always be in the format "X-RollerNet-DNSBL: $clientip found in $dnsbl with reason $lookup". Enabled mode will not add headers since it rejects the connection at the SMTP level. The header will only be added if a match is found in "speculative" mode.

I've renamed the "Speculative" mode to "Tag" mode to avoid confusion as to exactly what it does. It still does the same thing as described above, but with a shorter name.
