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