PMilter - Pure-Perl Milter implementation

PMilter is an attempt to reimplement Sendmail's milter (mail filter) protocol in pure Perl. There are many reasons for this, including independence from Sendmail's libmilter, as well as freedom from POSIX threads (helps stability for Perl filters), etc.

In addition, PMilter provides a milter protocol specification document (see below), and a package of flexible, extensible milter tools and prefabricated modules via the Mail::Milter package.

PMilter is beta software. Don't expect it to be "production" quality, nor to have extensive documentation, though it does essentially work at the core level at this point.
