Sendmail Milters in Python
Milter is a python module providing an interface to sendmail-8.11 libmilter. A Python milter lets python code work with sendmail to remove spam, scan for viruses, and otherwise monitor and/or alter mail messages as they are received by sendmail. This is more efficient than procmail solutions because messages are handled as they are received by sendmail. Thus, a message with a subject containing '$$$' can be rejected before it is fully received.
Version 0.3.1 of milter has been extensively tested on a production aix-4.1.5 mail server with python-2.1.1 and sendmail-8.11.5. Lots of threading bugs and memory leaks were fixed. It should even still work on linux! :-)
