Razor-Agents - Collection of files for checking, reporting, and revoking spam
Vipul's Razor is a distributed, collaborative, spam detection, reporting, and filtering network. The primary focus of the system is to identify and remove all email spam from the internet. Visit the website at http://razor.sourceforge.net/.
First a razorhome directory should be created where log,
and cached server information will live.
This is done via
-create option to razor-admin(1).
See man page for details.
You can immediately check spam using razor-check(1). See man page for details.
To report spam,
an identity must be registered.
This is done via
-register option to razor-admin(1).
razor-report(1) and razor-revoke(1) will work flawlessly.
All Razor-Agents share a configuration file. The contents of the configuration file are detailed in the razor-agent.conf(5) manpage.
Config file is computed before razorhome, in the following order:
-conf=/path/file.conf used if readable, else <home>/.razor/razor-agent.conf used if readable, else /etc/razor/razor-agent.conf used if readable, else all defaults are used.
To see configuration defaults, do razor-admin -create -conf=/tmp/razor2-defaults.conf
All Razor-Agents also share a razorhome directory, where identity, logging, and cached information about servers is stored. Razorhome is computed after configuration file, in the following order.
-home=/tmp/razor/ used if readable, else 'razorhome' from configuration file used if readable, else <home>/.razor/ used if readable, else <home>/.razor/ is created. if that fails, no razorhome. NOTE: If there is no razorhome, razor-report and razor-revoke will not work unless you specify -ident=/path/identity razor-check will still work.
Besides those listed at the end with their own manpages, Razor Agents also has the following files.
Usually a symlink to identity file containing user+pass. Used by razor-report(1) and razor-revoke(1).
Default log file. To change, edit razor-agent.conf(5).
Cached list of Razor Servers. If more than one, they are ordered by closest ping time.
Cached info for <name> server. The
srl key in this file is compared against the server greeting, and if server's is greater, new cache info is retrieved from the server.
Checks spam in mbox. prints numbers for those found to be spam. -d logs to stdout, -debuglevel=9 is verbose logging
Creates razorhome in /home/chad/.razor, log to stdout, does not connect to server (-s simulate).
sends spam to server, with no log msgs.
