You can use the request variables $_POST and $_GET:

For example:

$_POST["variable"]

$_GET["variable"]

Check how's your load. I've got a 32.00 load on one of our servers caused by tons of virus being scanned by clamav. I had to create a serial check instead of a parallel in procmail in order to avoid multiple processes of clamav hitting the server's load.

Is there a way to use the sc.surbl.org SURBL - Spam URI Realtime Blocklist? IP RBL's work by quering a DNS server. The query consists in the reversed fomat IP, and the RBL you are quering to: For example: IP: 66.111.196.10 RBL: sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org [root@tequila root]# nslookup > 10.196.111.66.sbl-...

Arf,

No, a message rejected by sendmail is not saved to the server. However you can take a look at your log file.

We first block the mail with procmail, and when there is enough evidence, and the mail can be blocked with the access file.

BTW, I've found that the correct place to put the RBL is under the "MAIL FILTER SECTION" of the sendmai.cf.
