The ISP i work for is thinking of using shared ports from a large
port provider requiring the need for pop before smtp to prevent
I have looked up the various solutions available for pop before smtp
and am not happy with most of them.
I am thinking of writing a small client server program in which pop
will insert allowed ip addresses into a data structure and the mailer
(in our case sendmail) will query the daemon to see if the ip address
is permitted to relay.
Without hacking sendmail, how might i get it to call the client
routine ? I'm not that much of a sendmail guru. Qmail might be an
option in the future, but not now.

anxious for their freedoms to be sacrificed on the
altar of authoritarianism thought to be necessary to
remain safe and secure."
