Name        : spamass-milter
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.3.2
Release     : 3.fc15
URL         : http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/spamass-milt/
Summary     : Milter (mail filter) for spamassassin
Description :
A milter (Mail Filter) application that pipes incoming mail (including things
received by rmail/UUCP) through SpamAssassin, a highly customizable spam
filter. A milter-compatible MTA such as Sendmail or Postfix is required.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This change is to help systems with Postfix handle mail from authenticated users better.

Postfix doesn't support the Sendmail's {auth_ssf} macro and this was causing the milter not to give any indication to SpamAssassin that mail from an authenticated user was trusted; the update enhances the milter to use the {auth_authen} macro (supported by both Postfix and Sendmail) to identify authenticated users to SpamAssassin, which then treats the mail as being from a trusted source.

Of course the -I option (off by default) can still be used to get the milter to accept mail from authenticated users straight away without passing it through SpamAssassin if preferred.
