You are right, I really meant editing the text file, not the db itself.

Nope, not really want to use procmail.

You really don't want to edit access.db directly, since the next time someone regenerates it from access.txt, you'll lose your changes. I think your request may be a bit too specialized to implement, but I admit there's no easy way to do what you want with the milter's current features, either.

Would adding a "X-Spam-Originating-IP: XX.XX.XX.XX" header be enough for you? You could use the -B flag and a procmail rule to extract the IP address, and call an external script to do the dirty work of updating the access.db.

Thanks for spamass-milter software. I have a suggestion, which I would be very grateful for, if implemented.
Can spamass-milter get some built-in facilities for optionally updating access.db database on the fly to include addresses in Received headers, on those letters that are considered spam by SpamAssassin, on C class network basis? If properly implemented, with reporting of what was changed on access.db, this would greatly help to keep recognized spammers away in the future.
