# See collectd.conf(5) LoadPlugin email # ... <Plugin email> SocketGroup "collectd" SocketPerms "0770" MaxConns 5 </Plugin>
DESCRIPTION¶The "email plugin" opens an UNIX-socket over which one can submit email statistics, such as the number of "ham", "spam", "virus", etc. mails received/handled, spam scores and matched spam checks.
This plugin is intended to be used with the Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Collectd SpamAssassin-plugin which is included in contrib/, but is of course not limited to that use.
OPERATION¶This plugin collects data indirectly by providing a UNIX-socket that external programs can connect to. A simple line based protocol is used to communicate with the plugin:
- E-Mail type (e.g. "ham", "spam", "virus",
...) and size (bytes):
If "size" is less than or equal to zero, "size" is ignored.
- Spam score:
- Successful spam checks (e.g. "BAYES_99",
Each line is limited to 256 characters (including the newline character). Longer lines will be ignored.
