"PerlMx the power tool for sysadmins debuts at Linux Showcase."

"ActiveState, the leading provider of Internet programming software and services announces the release of PerlMx, a tool that enables system administrators to create customized, powerful mail scripts easily. A mail filter engine that operates as a plug-in to Sendmail products, PerlMx, provides for rapid prototyping, debugging, and deployment of custom e-mail filtering solutions. PerlMx is implemented at the server level, is extensible, scalable, and currently runs on Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX."

"PerlMx combines the speed and robustness of Perl, the most popular Internet programming language, with sendmail, the de facto standard Internet Mail server responsible for moving the majority of all Internet Mail. PerlMx readily integrates with the Content Filter API available in Sendmail Switch 2.1. This latest product offering from Sendmail provides administrators an unprecedented level of control over their Internet backbone with features such as administrator alerts, attachment filtering, and subject line filtering. PerlMx's persistent run time allows real time processing of every SMTP transaction received by Sendmail. Unlike other email management products, the PerlMx approach enables system administrators to write customized scripts to immediately reject messages based on size, content, sender or recipient."
