However, it is recommended to use a local socket. - Pipe name in configuration file on which SpamFilter will receive requests may be short (without "\PIPE\" prefix) or complete form. - Socket name in configuration file on which SpamFilter will receive requests may be short (without "\socket\" prefix) or complete form. - The command line switch -R is deprecated. For -r now: first attempt will be made to connect to a local socket. In case of failure - with the named pipe. - Attribute from-local of option update-header in the configuration did not work. SF always added the header X-SF to email messages. Fixed.
