dspam-milter README

DSPAM milter is an implementation of the milter interface available in several MTAs for DSPAM, a statistical spam and content filter for e-mail. The milter talks to the DSPAM daemon over the regular DSPAM socket, using the DLMTP protocol.

Development of dspam-milter is hosted on Github. For questions, bugs and patches, please open an issue there. You can also try to send an e-mail.

build status


Currently the package contains:

  • dspam.client: A client that can talk to a DSPAM daemon over a socket.
  • dspam.milter: A milter application to use DSPAM classification in an MTA.


  • Python 2.7 (python)
  • DSPAM running in daemon mode

To use the milter, you also need:


To install, simply run python install in the distibution root.

Milter usage

The Milter is a ready to use application. The command dspam-milter should have been installed in your path. Behaviour of the daemon can be controlled by editing /etc/dspam-milter.cfg. In general dlmtp_* settings need to be configured, and added to dspam.conf.

The correct configuration of the DSPAM daemon is also documented in dspam-milter.cfg.


The dspam-milter code is available under the New (3-clause) BSD license. See LICENSE for details.
