NAME
       askfilter - Active Spam Killer

SYNOPSIS
       askfilter    [--procmail]   [--logfile=logfile]	 [--loglevel=loglevel]
       [--home=homedir]

DESCRIPTION
       Active Spam Killer (ASK)	is a challenge-authentication  anti-spam  tool
       that  attempts  to validate unknown senders before allowing delivery of
       their message. Validation occurs	by means of a challenge	reply sent  to
       senders	who  are  not  yet known to the	system.	Messages are kept in a
       queue pending confirmation until	the sender replies to  the  challenge.
       Further	messages  coming  from confirmed senders are delivered immedi-
       ately.

       ASK expects incoming mails on the standard input	and performs  delivery
       directly	 to the	user's mailbox,	as specified in	the ~.askrc configura-
       tion file. If using the --procmail switch, ASK works as	a  procmail(1)
       filter,	delivering  messages to	stdout and setting the appropriate re-
       turn code for procmail.

       New users should	always execute the asksetup(1)	bootstrap  program  to
       create the initial ~/.ask directory and a template .askrc file.

OPTIONS
       --procmail
	      In  this	mode,  normal messages will be delivered to stdout and
	      the corresponding	exit codes will	be used	to  mark  delivery  or
	      not.  Use	this switch when invoking ASK from procmail(1)

       --logfile=filename
	      Specifies	the file to be used for	logging.

       --loglevel=loglevel
	      Specifies	the desired logging level. Defaults to 0 (no logging).

       --home=homedir
	      Use  homedir  as	the user's home	directory. This	is needed with
	      some MTAs	that do	not set	the HOME environment variable.	It  is
	      also  useful  to run several, isolated ASK configurations	with a
	      unique user account.

FILES
       ~/.askrc
	      Main configuration file.
       ~/.ask
	      This directory contains the queued files,	 temporary  files  and
	      lists.
