Amavis: Tuning, Tipps and Tricks (en)

The presentation will run through capabilities of amavisd-new, including an overview of per-recipient lookup capabilities, explain the concept of contents categories, cover policy banks along with illustrating their use in more complex setup topologies.

The flow of rules evaluation for banning message parts will be explained, along with per-recipient configuration of banning checks. As the more recent versions of amavisd offer DKIM signing and verification, a special attention will be given on putting it to good use. Some performance measurements and tuning considerations will be shown. Time permitting, we'll touch on some debugging hints.
