bley is an intelligent greylisting daemon for Postfix. It uses various test (incl. RBL and SPF) to decide whether a sender should be greylisted or not, thus mostly eliminating the usual greylisting delay while still filtering most of the spam.

bley was developed during my bachelor's thesis at the Heinrich-Heine-University Duesseldorf and now continues to grow as my time permits.


I've just released bley 0.1.5! This release includes another MySQL fix (people, really, use PostgreSQL!), a manpage and now properly detects UsEr@EXamPLe.cOM as user@example.com.

I've just released bley 0.1.4! It includes two small fixes that should make it even more stable (1: reconnect to a dead database, 2: strip non-ascii chars).

I've just released bley 0.1.2! 0.1.1 behaved wrongly in some setups in regard to RBLs (twisted-names is needed again).

Today, bley was accepted to Debian.
If you are running unstable (sid), you now can "apt-get install bley" and enjoy! Ubuntu Maverick should follow soon, and I hope to be able to provide backports for Lenny and older Ubuntus too.
