Weighted postfix-policy-daemon in perl to score DNSBLs (RBL/RHSBL), HELO, MAIL FROM, Client IP Addresses at RCPT TO stage.

- Evaluates DNSBL/RHSBL results, DNS-relationships (A, PTR, MX, /16, /24) of all SMTP arguments, RFC-correctness and summarizes a score on which one can decide to reject the mail at RCPT TO stage, so that no DATA needs to be received and while being multirecipient-aware. - Stores the most frequent positive and negative results in a cache daemon based on "ip-sender" hashes which reduces DNS lookups.
