smtp-policy things / DNS tests
With the lattest (2.99.49p9snap5) policy code I get better and
better results from the DNS analysis with less mistakes, but
following surprised me somewhat:
25274r MAIL From:<email@example.com> SIZE=3522 BODY=8BITMIME
25274 -- policy result=-102, msg: <NONE!>
25274w 453-4.7.1 Policy analysis reports DNS error with your source domain.
25274w 453 4.7.1 Please correct your source address and/or the info at the DNS.
The thing is, code queries at first for MX, and that yields
SERVFAIL! If it would have queried for A nevertheless, it
would have gotten it, and perhaps accepted this one.
The smtp-transport agent does "So you got SERVFAIL for MX,
ask for A anyway" routine.
The question is, how helpfull and error tolerant we need to be
at the input analysis ?
On the TEST-DNS-RBL front, it seems to work, but Vixie's pages
are giving me now "Access Denied" ( http://maps.vix.com/rbl/ )

25291w 221 2.0.0 mailhost.utu.fi Out
That "initial policy msg" text is incorrect, though.
The DNS lookup yields:
18.104.22.168.rbl.maps.vix.com. 300 A 127.0.0.2
22.214.171.124.rbl.maps.vix.com. 300 TXT "Blackholed - see <URL:http://maps.vix.com/cgi-bin/lookup?126.96.36.199>"
which means I have to add code to retrieve the TXT records.
(And to use them too..)
On "hijacked relays" front:

I have the default behaviour with "SENDEROKWITHDNS +",
which means soft footines (not having trusted on the
code enough) -- using "SENDEROKWITHDNS -" would yield
instant "553 5.7.1 ..." rejection instead of this
