Post details: First release of a PGP plugin for SpamAssassin

Apr 02, 2007 : First release of a PGP plugin for SpamAssassin

Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::OpenPGP is a SpamAssassin plugin that validates PGP signed email. It also adds some mail-specific validation: it requires the From: address to be one of the addresses on the signer's key, and that the Date: is close to the date of the signature.

It's only version 1.0.0 and I'm not even using it myself (yet), but it passes 17 functional/acceptance tests. I'd appreciate any feedback.

The code is available via CPAN of course, and also through Konfidi's SVN repo: browse

You are answering my prayers. I'll check it out immediately and then off to educating everybody to sign her/his e-mails.

It doesn't scale. You really don't want to go downloading keys with >10k users. Ideally I want to switch of bayesian checking for properly encrypted (chunks of) e-mail. Or at least lower the score if there are PGP-wise meaningfull parts in a message.

Oh and please clean up all the fixmes in the current code. It' s dirty and doesn't look like a version that deserves to be >1.x
