Mailman has a friendly but rather awkward web interface for manipulating the queue of messages held for moderator approval. Since I maintain a couple of dozen lists, some of which receive 50+ spams per day, I needed a way to reduce the time taken to process all the junk e-mail.
The result was listadmin. It is designed to keep user interaction to a minimum, in theory you could run it from cron to prune the queue. It can use the score from a header added by SpamAssassin to filter, or it can match specific senders, subjects, or reasons. The configuration file is Notepad.exe friendly. A sample configuration file:
# action to take when pressing just Return default discard
# discard automatically anything with SA score higher than 6 spamlevel 6
You can't make a screenshot of a program like this, but a sample session may be instructive. See the manual page for the whole story. The script is written in Perl and requires a few modules, but AFAIK they are all bundled with Perl 5.8.0.
What's New in This Release:
· This release fixes the use of proxies for HTTP, adds the capability of turning nomail on or off from the command line, and improves interoperability with Mailman 2.1.x.
· Unknown character encodings are also handled more gracefully.
