Policy Daemon

Policyd v2 (codenamed "cluebringer") is a multi-platform policy server for popular MTAs. This policy daemon is designed mostly for large scale mail hosting environments. The main goal is to implement as many spam combating and email compliance features as possible while at the same time maintaining portability, stability, and performance. Its features include detailed policy and group specification, access control, helo/ehlo checks (helo randomization prevention and RFC compliance), SPF checks, Greylisting, Quotas, and Amavisd-new integration.

Excellent software
I have tried several greylist daemons before trying policyd. All softwares that I tried worked, but are somehow unstable.

Policyd solve that. It's a VERY stable software with several more options than all other greylist daemons i have tried. It has the most flexible whitelist ever.

Congratulations Cami !
