With sendmail you're looking at using some sendmail's milter API based
solution or procmail. mimedefang is one milter, there are few others
(just do a google search). The fact that you run Solaris doesn't
You should replace Sun's sendmail with 8.12.9 from sendmail.org,
compiled with milter support. And maybe install perl 5.6.1 or 5.8.0 as
well incase you have Solaris 8 and perl 5.005_03 now.
Read mimedefang doentation (manualpages, FAQ, everything in the
tarball) and search the mimedefang mailing list for ideas.
Or if it's just local delivery and not relaying the mail to some
internal mail server, using spamassassin via procmail might be an
option as well.
SpamAssassin website has some step-by-step guides, but you'll do alot
better by studying the available doentation and learning things on
your own. And with MIMEDefang you want to focus on MIMEDefang as it
does all the work. The guides usually just cover specific scenarios
and none of the guides might not cover your situation, so you need to
do some work on your own.
