Subject: LDAP lookup for "TO" addresses?? Validating recipients at the inbound

First, let me say I *adore* spamfilter since installing it 3 weeks ago.

However, due to the level of Internet based maladies, We have Spamfilter forward to an AntiVirus server and them ultimately to an Email server.

Unfortunately, there is still a number of Emails that get through that have no valid destination address. As such, the EMail server and the AntiVirus server trade these back and forth until the MTA hops expire (User unknown/reject loop).

I need a way (LDAP lookup on inbound connection??) to validate the recipient when SpamFilter has a hold of the inbound connection.

Good point. The easiest/faster option will be to check against a text file of users. LDAP/Active Directory will be further down the line. I think we'll be able to implement the text file option fairly soon.

That would be great! I can write a script to pull addresses from LDAP automagically and populate the text file. No Worries!
