NAME ^

Mail::SpamAssassin::PerMsgStatus - per-message status (spam or not-spam)

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $spamtest = new Mail::SpamAssassin ({
    'rules_filename'      => '/etc/spamassassin.rules',
    'userprefs_filename'  => $ENV{HOME}.'/.spamassassin.cf'
  });
  my $mail = Mail::SpamAssassin::NoMailAudit->new();

  my $status = $spamtest->check ($mail);
  if ($status->is_spam()) {
    $status->rewrite_mail ();
    $mail->accept("caught_spam");
  }
  ...

DESCRIPTION ^

The Mail::SpamAssassin check() method returns an object of this class. This object encapsulates all the per-message state.

METHODS ^

$status->learn()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. If the score is outside a certain range around the threshold, ie. if the message is judged more-or-less definitely spam or definitely non-spam, it will be fed into SpamAssassin's learning systems (currently the naive Bayesian classifier), so that future similar mails will be caught.

$isspam = $status->is_spam ()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. It will return 1 for mail determined likely to be spam, 0 if it does not seem spam-like.

$list = $status->get_names_of_tests_hit ()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. It will return a comma-separated string, listing all the symbolic test names of the tests which were trigged by the mail.

$list = $status->get_names_of_subtests_hit ()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. It will return a comma-separated string, listing all the symbolic test names of the meta-rule sub-tests which were trigged by the mail. Sub-tests are the normally-hidden rules, which score 0 and have names beginning with two underscores, used in meta rules.

$num = $status->get_hits ()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. It will return the number of hits this message incurred.

$num = $status->get_required_hits ()

After a mail message has been checked, this method can be called. It will return the number of hits required for a mail to be considered spam.

$report = $status->get_report ()

Deliver a "spam report" on the checked mail message. This contains details of how many spam detection rules it triggered.

The report is returned as a multi-line string, with the lines separated by \n characters.

$preview = $status->get_content_preview ()

Give a "preview" of the content.

This is returned as a multi-line string, with the lines separated by \n characters, containing a fully-decoded, safe, plain-text sample of the first few lines of the message body.

$status->rewrite_mail ()

Rewrite the mail message. This will at minimum add headers, and at maximum MIME-encapsulate the message text, to reflect its spam or not-spam status.

The possible modifications are as follows:

Subject: header for spam mails

The string *****SPAM***** (changeable with subject_tag config option) is prepended to the subject, unless the rewrite_subject 0 configuration option is given.

X-Spam-Status: header for spam mails

A string, Yes, hits=nn required=nn tests=... is set in this header to reflect the filter status. The keys in this string are as follows:

hits=nn The number of hits the message triggered.
required=nn The threshold at which a mail is marked as spam.
tests=... The symbolic names of tests which were triggered.
version=... The version of SpamAssassin which made the change
X-Spam-Status: header for non-spam mails

A string, No, hits=nn required=nn tests=... is set in this header to reflect the filter status. The keys in this string are the same as for spam mails (see above).

X-Spam-Flag: header for spam mails

Set to YES.

X-Spam-Checker-Version: header for all mails

Set to the version number of the SpamAssassin checker which tested the mail.

spam message with report_safe

If report_safe is set to true (1), then spam messages are encapsulated into their own message/rfc822 MIME attachment without any modifications being made.

If report_safe is set to false (0), then the message will only have the above headers added/modified.

$messagestring = $status->get_full_message_as_text ()

Returns the mail message as a string, including headers and raw body text.

If the message has been rewritten using rewrite_mail(), these changes will be reflected in the string.

Note: this is simply a helper method which calls methods on the mail message object. It is provided because Mail::Audit uses an unusual (ie. not quite intuitive) interface to do this, and it has been a common stumbling block for authors of scripts which use SpamAssassin.

$status->finish ()

Indicate that this $status object is finished with, and can be destroyed.

If you are using SpamAssassin in a persistent environment, or checking many mail messages from one Mail::SpamAssassin factory, this method should be called to ensure Perl's garbage collection will clean up old status objects.
