Mail::SpamAssassin::Client - Client for spamd Protocol

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $client = Mail::SpamAssassin::Client->new({
                                port => 783,
                                host => 'localhost',
                                username => 'someuser'});
  or

  my $client = Mail::SpamAssassin::Client->new({
                                socketpath => '/path/to/socket',
                                username => 'someuser'});

  Optionally takes timeout, which is applied to IO::Socket for the
  initial connection.  If not supplied, it defaults to 30 seconds.

  if ($client->ping()) {
    print "Ping is ok\n";
  }

  my $result = $client->process($testmsg);

  if ($result->{isspam} eq 'True') {
    do something with spam message here
  }
