The mail/maildrop port

maildrop-3.0.0 – mail delivery agent with filtering abilities (source)

Description

maildrop is a replacement for your local mail delivery agent. It
reads a mail message from standard input, then delivers the message
to your mailbox. maildrop knows how to deliver mail to mbox-style
mailboxes, and maildirs.

maildrop will optionally read instructions from a file, which
describes how to filter incoming mail. Instructions can be provided
having mail delivered to alternate mailboxes, or forwarded somewhere
else. Unlike procmail, maildrop uses a structured filtering language.

maildrop is written in C++, and is significantly larger than procmail
in compiled form.  However, it uses resources much more efficiently.
Unlike procmail, maildrop will not read a 10 megabyte mail message
into memory. Large messages are saved in a temporary file, and are
filtered from the temporary file.

Readme

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Maildrop must be run as the uid/gid of the user whose mailbox it is
delivering to.

Therefore, if the MTA does not spawn it with the correct uid/gid, it
needs to be suid root to perform the operation itself.

The port is installed with the suid bit stripped by default. This works
out-of-the-box with MTAs like qmail, which spawn maildrop with the
correct uid/gid it needs to perform the delivery.

For more information, please read the documentation in
${PREFIX}/share/doc/maildrop/INSTALL.
It should be safe to enable the suid bits, but scan over the code first
and satisfy yourself that there are no security holes.

If you perform a full audit, please inform  and the
suid bit may then be enabled by default.

The following files will need suid re-enabled if you so choose:
	${PREFIX}/bin/maildrop
	${PREFIX}/bin/lockmail
