razor-check - Razor Filtering Agent
razor-check [-s -d -H] file_with_mail_in_rfc822_format
$ cat mail | razor-check $ razor-check ./mail $ razor-check -d ./mail
razor-check checks a mail against the distributed Razor Catalogue. It
should be invoked before the mail is delivered or processed by a human.
razor-check terminates with exit value
0 if the signature for the
mail is catalogued on the server (spam) or
1 if the mail is not
catalogued by the server (not a spam).
razor-check should be invoked
against every incoming mail by mail processors (like procmail) or MTAs
(like sendmail). An alternate method would be to call
cron, at regular intervals, to identify and mark spam in queued mailboxes.
razor-check is usually run by piping the contents of the mail to it, or
by providing the name of the file that contains the mail message to be
checked as the last argument.
razor-check takes the following
-d | --verbose
-M | --mbox
Accept a mailbox name on the command line and check every mail in the
mailbox against the database.
razor-check will print out the serial
number of every mail found in the Catalogue. When combined with
will also print the serial numbers, prefixed with a
-, of mails that
were not found in the Catalogue. Usage:
razor-check -M ~/Mail/possible-spam
-S | --sig
Accept a list of pre-computed (with
-H) signatures on the command line,
instead of computing one from mail content. When called with
razor-check will not attempt to read from STDIN. Usage:
razor-check -d -S a8a3d545adb73f9733675571ffeaf10cba87745b
razor-check is usually invoked from procmail(1). Here are some common
ways of using it with procmail:
Subjectheader if mail is spam:
:0 Wc | razor-check :0 Waf | formail -i "Subject: Razor Warning: SPAM/UBE/UCE"
X-Razor-Warningheader to spam:
:0 Wc | razor-check :0 Waf | formail -A "X-Razor-Warning: SPAM."
:0 Wc | razor-check :0 Wa /home/foo/Mail/razor-caught
