Howdy folks,

I'm looking at some milters that would be very useful to my mail
architecture (milter-ahead is one I'm looking at deploying very soon).

What's the best way to add 3rd-party milters so that it's still
maintainable? I'm thinking of writing a port around it (using
mail/rbl-milter) because I could then use the ports infrastructure to
upgrade. Does this method work well when using milters with the sendmail
in the base OS? What are other folks doing to solve this sort of


Truth suffers from too much analysis.
