Sympa::Spindle::ProcessOutgoing - Workflow of message distribution


  use Sympa::Spindle::ProcessOutgoing;
  my $spindle = Sympa::Spindle::ProcessOutgoing->new;


Sympa::Spindle::ProcessOutgoing defines workflow to distribute messages in outgoing spool using mailer.

If messages are stored into incoming spool, sooner or later Sympa::Spindle::ProcessIncoming fetches them, modifies header and body of them, shelves several transformations, and at last stores altered messages into outgoing spool.

When spin() method of this class is invoked, it reads the messages in outgoing spool and executes shelved transformations. Message transformations are done in the following order:

  • DMARC protection
  • Processing for tracking and VERP (see also <Sympa::Tracking>)
  • Personalization (a.k.a. "merge")
  • S/MIME signing
  • S/MIME encryption
  • Removal of existing DKIM signature(s) which are invalidated by preceding transformations.
  • DKIM signing

Then spin() method stores transformed message into mailer (See Sympa::Mailer).
