Blackhole stops spam and prevents unwanted senders from sending you email. It is put in the .qmail file and will divert spam and viruses to separate files which can be checked with an IMAP client if configured to do so. It not only uses the RBL type servers, but also checks against your own list of good/bad domains/users. You can also block email that is sent to an address that is not specified in a list of addresses to use for emailing you. Blackhole can log and keep the email it blocks, and can be configured to either reply with a message of your choice or make it look like you don't exist on the system. You can also add relays to the list of relays that the script skips. It also has subject line checking with ^ and $ matching lines, and includes a virus checking server program.
