MessageWall is an SMTP proxy. It sits between the outside world and your mail server and keeps out viruses, spam, and mail relaying. It offers filtering via header and body checks, DNS-based blacklists for IP addresses (DNSBL) and domains (RHSBL), and DNS-based distributed checksumming (DNS DCC) similar to Vipul's Razor. Features can be filtered on a per-address basis, and since MessageWall communicates via SMTP, it works with any MTA. It also offers message tagging as a per-address configurable alternative to message blocking. MessageWall organizes filtering customizations into profiles. The configuration file defines a default profile, and a seperate file specifies addresses and domains with profiles other than the default. Each profile contains a set of rules for how to filter mail. There are currently 14 rules available.
