dnsblog − Postfix DNS white/blacklist logger
dnsblog [generic Postfix daemon options]
With each connection, the dnsblog(8) server receives a DNS white/blacklist domain name, IP address, and an ID. If the address is listed under the DNS white/blacklist, the dnsblog(8) server logs the match and replies with the query arguments plus an address list with the resulting IP addresses separated by whitespace. Otherwise it replies with the query arguments plus an empty address list. Finally, The dnsblog(8) server closes the connection.
Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).
Changes to main.cf are picked up automatically, as dnsblog(8) processes run for only a limited amount of time. Use the command "postfix reload" to speed up a change.
