=head1 NAME

PublicInbox::SaPlugin::ListMirror - SpamAssassin plugin for mailing list mirrors

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  loadplugin PublicInbox::SaPlugin::ListMirror

Declare some mailing lists based on the expected List-Id value,
expected servers, and mailing list address:

  list_mirror List-Id <foo.example.com> *.example.com foo@example.com
  list_mirror List-Id <bar.example.com> *.example.com bar@example.com

Bump the score for messages which come from unexpected servers:

  header LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED eval:check_list_mirror_received()
  describe LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED Received does not match expected
  score LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED 10

Bump the score for messages which Bcc the list:

  header LIST_MIRROR_BCC eval:check_list_mirror_bcc()
  describe LIST_MIRROR_BCC Mailing list was Bcc-ed
  score LIST_MIRROR_BCC 5

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This plugin contains common functions to provide accurate, ongoing
mirrors of existing mailing lists.  It may be used independently of the
rest of public-inbox, it does not depend on any public-inbox code, only
SpamAssassin.

=head1 ADMINISTRATOR SETTINGS

This plugin has no administrator settings, aside from the need
to load it via C<loadplugin> and enabling user rules
C<allow_user_rules 1>

=head1 USER SETTINGS

=item list_mirror HEADER HEADER_VALUE HOSTNAME_GLOB [LIST_ADDRESS]

Declare a list based on an expected C<HEADER> matching C<HEADER_NAME>
exactly coming from C<HOSTNAME_GLOB>.  C<LIST_ADDRESS> is optional,
but may specify the address of the mailing list being mirrored.

C<List-Id> or C<X-Mailing-List> are common values of C<HEADER>

An example of C<HEADER_VALUE> is C<E<lt>foo.example.orgE<gt>>
if C<HEADER> is C<List-Id>.

C<HOSTNAME_GLOB> may be a wildcard match for machines where mail can
come from or an exact match.

C<LIST_ADDRESS> is only required if using the L</check_list_mirror_bcc>
eval rule

C<list_mirror> may be specified multiple times.

=head1 EVAL FUNCTIONS

=over 4

=item header LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED eval:check_list_mirror_received()

The C<check_list_mirror_received> function implements C<Received:>
header checking based on L</list_mirror> configuration values.

This rule can be used to score and prevent messages from being injected
directly into your mirror without going through the expected mailing
list servers:

  ifplugin PublicInbox::SaPlugin::ListMirror
    header LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED eval:check_list_mirror_received()
    describe LIST_MIRROR_RECEIVED Received does not match expected
  endif

=item header LIST_MIRROR_BCC eval:check_list_mirror_bcc()

The C<check_list_mirror_bcc> function checks for Bcc to mailing lists
declared with a C<LIST_ADDRESS> via L</list_mirror>

Spammers will often Bcc mailing lists; while it's uncommon and
strange for valid messages to be Bcc-ed to any public mailing list.
This rule allows users to assign a score to Bcc-ed messages

  ifplugin PublicInbox::SaPlugin::ListMirror
    header LIST_MIRROR_BCC eval:check_list_mirror_bcc()
    describe LIST_MIRROR_BCC Mailing list was Bcc-ed
  endif
