       postgreyreport - Fatal report for Postfix Greylisting Policy Server

       postgreyreport [options...]

	-h, --help		     display this help and exit
	    --version		     display version and exit

	    --user=USER 	     run as USER (default: postgrey)
	    --dbdir=PATH	     find db files in PATH (default: /var/lib/postgrey)
	    --delay=N		     report triplets that did not try again after N seconds (default: 300)
	    --greylist-text=TXT      text to match on for greylist maillog lines

	    --skip_pool 	     Skip report for 'subscriber pools' ( last 2 octets of IP found in PTR name )
	    --skip_dnsbl=RBL	     RBL server to query and skip reporting for any listed hosts (SLOW!!)
	    --skip_clients=FILE      PTR or IP or REGEXP of clients to skip in report
	    --match_clients=FILE     *ONLY* report if fatal *AND* PTR/IP of client matches

	    --show_tries	     display the number of attempts failed triplets made in first column

	    --nosingle_line	     display sender/recipients grouped by ptr - ip
	    --separate_by_subnet=TXT display TXT for every new /24 (ex: "=================\n" )
	    --separate_by_ip=TXT     display TXT for every new IP  (ex: "\n")
	    --check_sender=LIST      one or more of: mx,mx/24,a,a/24
				     does DNS/A lookups for sender @domain and compares sending IP
				     if match displays "MX" "A" or "MX/24" or "A/24" depending on LIST

	  Note that --(skip|match)_clients can be specified multiple times and there are no default files.
	  Same rules apply as postgrey's --whitelist-clients, see postgrey doc for more info.

	  --skip_dnsbl can also be specified multiple times to query multiple DNSBL servers.

       postgreyreport opens postgrey.db as read-only; reads a maillog via
       STDIN, extracts the triplets for any Greylisted lines and looks them up
       in postgrey.db.	if the difference in first and last time seen is less
       than --delay=N then the triplet is considered fatal and displayed to

       The report sorts by client IP address


       unless you are using --lookup_by_subnet or excluding all known MTA
       pools you will likely have false fatal reports for "BigISPs". A message
       that was tried from every IP in SMTP pool before making it through will
       show up in the report for all of the attempted source IPs


       It is best to run postgreyreport against a maillog that is at least
       several hours old (yesterdays?)	( you be the judge on how old is
       acceptable ). if you run the report against a live maillog you are not
       giving legit MTAs enough time to try again and you will have lots of
       inaccurate information.

	  Ex usage:

		   zcat /var/log/maillog.0.gz | ./postgreyreport [options] > postgreyreport.log


		   zcat /var/log/maillog.0.gz | \
		   ./postgreyreport --nosingle_line --check_sender=mx,a \
		   # 94 "=" total, some were omitted for clarity

	  Ex Output: ( POD wrapping will mess this up, view source )
