policyd-weight is intended to eliminate forged envelope senders and HELOs
(i.e. in bogus mails). It allows you to score DNSBLs (RBL/RHSBL), HELO,
MAIL FROM and client IP addresses before any queuing is done. It allows
you to REJECT messages which have a score higher than allowed, providing
improved blocking of spam and virus mails. policyd-weight caches the most
frequent client/sender combinations (SPAM as well as HAM) to reduce the
number of DNS queries.
