Authors/Port authors:

Hermes is an antispam SMTP proxy powerfull and highly configurable. Hermes is:

  • Multiplatform
  • Transparent
  • Efficient
  • Configurable
  • Extension friendly and compatible

Works combining SMTP banner delay, Throttling, Greylisting and DNSBL.

Libspf2 is a library which allows email systems such as Sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Zmailer and MS Exchange to check SPF records and make sure that the email is authorized by the domain name that it is coming from.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.
