  Description     : Spam-fighting SMTP frontend for exim, postfix or qmail

Qpsmtpd is a flexible SMTP daemon written in Perl.  It drops
in alongside a preexisting MTA such as Exim, Postfix or qmail,
acting as their inbound SMTP interface to the outside world while
adding many anti-spam features.  It can easily be altered or
enhanced through a plugin interface which enables fine-grained
control over the SMTP transaction.
The goal of qpsmtpd's design is wherever possible to reject spam
and virus-infected mail during the SMTP transaction itself, rather
than after acceptance, which can help reduce the storage and
overhead costs of bouncing.  Qpsmtpd also emphasizes detection of
spam though characteristics of the remote SMTP client behavior,
in addition to more conventional content analysis techniques.
