=head1 NAME

Mail::Abuse - Helps parse and respond to miscellaneous abuse complaints


  use Mail::Abuse;


This module and the accompaining software can be used to automatically
parse and respond to various formats of abuse complaints. This
software is geared towards abuse desk administrators who need
sophisticated tools to deal with the complains.

C<Mail::Abuse> is actually a bundle of modules that provide various
services. This documentation provides a general description of the
functions provided by each one. No useful code is provided in the
C<Mail::Abuse> module, appart from this documentation and the version
information below.

The following classes/packages are part of this distribution.


=item C<Mail::Abuse::Report>

A report is a collection made of the received report and ths incidents
it describes. See L<Mail::Abuse::Report> for more information.

=item C<Mail::Abuse::Incident>

An incident is each of the individual policy violations that are
presented in a given report. A report should have at least, one
incident. See L<Mail::Abuse::Incident> for more information.

=item C<Mail::Abuse::Processor>

Once the reports are analyzed and its incidents are extracted, you
will want to do something with the information. This is the job of a
processor. See L<Mail::Abuse::Processor> for more information.

=item C<Mail::Abuse::Reader>

Abuse reports can be fetched from a variety of places and through
various protocols. This is what readers do: Read a report. See
L<Mail::Abuse::Reader> for more information.

=item C<Mail::Abuse::Filter>

An abuse report might contain incidents that are not to be handled by
us. A filter remove incidents that does not belong to our network. See
L<Mail::Abuse::Filter> for more information.


All of the modules take a lot of their configuration information from
a specially formatted file.

This distribution also includes a number of scripts. See the C<bin/>
directory for more information.

=head2 EXPORT

None by default.

=head1 HISTORY

$Log:,v $
Revision 1.26  2007/06/22 20:44:23  lem
Fixed a test error pointed out by Mark Overmeer. Thanks MarkOv!

Revision 1.25  2006/03/31 15:17:10  lem
New release. Notable changes include:

Various improvements in the message handling of Incident::Normalize.

::Incident::Log knows about some ClamAV headers, so it's not that
biased towards marking a spam complaint as a virus complaint.

Added ::Processor::TableDBI.

::Processor::Store can now compress stored reports. It also supports
storing the text of the report only.

See the examples and scripts that come with this release to see
further changes.

Revision 1.24  2005/06/09 17:57:01  lem
Fixed small typo.

This new release features cleaner tests. Also lookups in DBI data
sources for things like IP pool assignments, Radius and DHCP logs and
similar data makes it easier to scale up to larger operations.

Mail::Abuse::Reader::GoogleGroups will likely be deprecated from
production use at a later release. It is non-functional since Google
Groups Beta replaced the traditional interface.
