Replies module

This module collects the message-id header of messages sent by authenticated users and stores corresponding hashes to Redis, which are set to expire after a configurable amount of time (by default 1 day). Furthermore, it hashes in-reply-to headers of all received messages & checks for matches (ie. messages sent in response to messages our system originated) and yields a symbol which could be used to adjust scoring or forces an action (most likely “no action” to accept) according to configuration.


Settings for the module are described below (default values are indicated in brackets).

  • action: apply the given action to messages identified as replies (should typically be set to “no action” to accept)
  • expire: time, in seconds, after which to expire records (default is one day).
  • key_prefix: string prefixed to keys in Redis (default rr)
  • symbol: symbol yielded on messages identified as replies.

You also need to set Redis servers to store data (e.g. servers or read_servers and write_servers). You can specify all standard Redis arguments, such as password, timeout, database and so on.


Configuration should be added to /etc/rspamd/local.d/replies.conf:

# This setting is non-default & may be desirable
#action = "no action";
# These are default settings you may want to change
expire = 1d;
key_prefix = "rr";
message = "Message is reply to one we originated";
symbol = "REPLY";
# Module specific redis configuration
#servers = "localhost";
