DESCRIPTION

This class is a filter module class for use with Courier::Filter. It matches a message if one of the message's envelope fields matches the configured criteria.

Constructor

The following constructor is provided:

new(%options): returns Courier::Filter::Module::Envelope

Creates a new Envelope filter module.

%options is a list of key/value pairs representing any of the following options:

fields

Required. A reference to a hash containing the message envelope field names and patterns (as key/value pairs) that messages are to be matched against. Field names are matched case-insensitively. Patterns may either be simple strings (for exact, case-sensitive matches) or regular expression objects created by the qr// operator (for inexact, partial matches).

The following envelope fields are supported:

sender

The message's envelope sender (from the "MAIL FROM" SMTP command).

recipient

Any of the message's envelope recipients (from the "RCPT TO" SMTP commands).

remote_host

The IP address of the SMTP client that submitted the message.

remote_host_name

The host name (gained by Courier through a DNS reverse lookup) of the SMTP client that submitted the message, if available.

remote_host_helo

The HELO string that the SMTP client specified, if available.

So for instance, to match any message with a sender of paul.greenfield@unisys.com, directed at julian@mehnle.net (possibly among other recipients), you could set the fields option as follows:

    fields      => {
        sender      => 'paul.greenfield@unisys.com',
        recipient   => 'julian@mehnle.net'
    }
response

A string that is to be returned literally as the match result in case of a match. Defaults to "Prohibited <field>: <value>".

All options of the Courier::Filter::Module constructor are also supported. Please see "new()" in Courier::Filter::Module for their descriptions.

Instance methods

See "Instance methods" in Courier::Filter::Module for a description of the provided instance methods.
