yaspi (Yosi's Anti-Spam POP3 fIlter bot) is a POP3 mail-scanner specifically made to combat mail bombings caused by viruses (i.e. Swen). It connects to the POP3 server, inspects the messages, and deletes the infected ones without ever downloading them. Its most interesting feature is that it can automatically send abuse reports to the ISPs from which the infected mails originated.
Dkfilter is a DomainKeys implementation for the Postfix mail transfer agent. It is implemented as two filters (or SMTP proxies). There is an "outbound" filter for adding DomainKeys signatures to outgoing email and an "inbound" filter for verifying signatures of incoming email. The filters can be plugged into Postfix as either Before-Queue or After-Queue Postfix content filters. For more information about DomainKeys, see http://antispam.yahoo.com/domainkeys.
dkimproxy is an SMTP proxy that signs and/or verifies Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM). It is designed to work with Postfix. It comprises two separate proxies: an "outbound" proxy for signing outgoing email, and an "inbound" proxy for verifying signatures of incoming email. With Postfix, the proxies can operate as either Before-Queue or After-Queue content filters.
Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse (DCC) is a system of clients and servers that collect and count checksums related to mail messages. The counts can be used by SMTP servers and mail user agents to detect and reject bulk mail. DCC servers can exchange common checksums. The checksums include values that are "fuzzy", or constant across common variations in bulk messages.
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It supports several crypt(3) password hash types commonly found on Unix systems, as well as Windows LM hashes. On top of this, lots of other hashes and ciphers are added in the community-enhanced version (-jumbo), and some are added in John the Ripper Pro.
DSPAM is a server-side statistical anti-spam agent for Unix email servers. It masquerades as the email server's local delivery agent and effectively filters spam using a combination of de-obfuscation techniques, specialized algorithms, and statistical analysis. The result is an administratively maintenance-free, self-learning anti-spam tool. DSPAM has yielded real-world success rates beyond 99.9% accuracy with less than a 0.01% chance of false positives.
Heirloom mailx (formerly known as "nail") is derived from Berkeley Mail and provides the functionality of the System V and POSIX mailx commands. Additional features include support for MIME, IMAP (including caching and disconnected use), POP3, SMTP, S/MIME, international character sets, maildir folders, message threading, powerful search methods, scoring, and a Bayesian junk mail filter. Mailx can be used as a mail batch language in nearly the same way as it is used interactively. It can thus act as a mailbox filter, can fetch mail from remote accounts, and can send files as attachments.
spamdyke is a drop-in filter for qmail to provide connection-time blacklisting, graylisting, DNS RBL/RHSBL checking, sender MX checking, improved logging, and more. spamdyke will provide SMTP AUTH and TLS to unpatched qmail servers. Installing spamdyke does not require patching or recompiling qmail.
