       Mail::SpamAssassin::SQLBasedAddrList - SpamAssassin SQL Based Auto

           my $factory = Mail::SpamAssassin::SQLBasedAddrList->new()
           $spamtest->set_persistent_addr_list_factory ($factory);
         ... call into SpamAssassin classes...

       SpamAssassin will call:

           my $addrlist = $factory->new_checker($spamtest);
           $entry = $addrlist->get_addr_entry ($addr, $origip);

       A SQL based persistent address list implementation.

       See "Mail::SpamAssassin::PersistentAddrList" for more information.

       Uses DBI::DBD module access to your favorite database (tested with
       MySQL, SQLite and PostgreSQL) to store user auto-whitelists.

       The default table structure looks like this: CREATE TABLE awl (
         username VARCHAR NOT NULL,
         email VARCHAR NOT NULL,
         ip VARCHAR NOT NULL,
         count INT NOT NULL,
         totscore FLOAT NOT NULL,
         PRIMARY KEY (username, email, ip) )

       You're table definition may change depending on which database driver
       you choose.  There is a config option to override the table name.

       This module introduces several new config variables:






       see "Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf" for more information.

       public class (Mail::SpamAssassin::SQLBasedAddrList) new ()

       Description: This method creates a new instance of the SQLBasedAddrList
       factory and calls the parent's (PersistentAddrList) new method.

       public instance (Mail::SpamAssassin::SQLBasedAddrList) new_checker (\%

       Description: This method is called to setup a new checker interface and
       return a blessed copy of itself.  Here is where we setup the SQL
       database connection based on the config values.

       public instance (\%) get_addr_entry (String $addr)

       Description: This method takes a given $addr and splits it between the
       email address component and the ip component and performs a lookup in
       the database. If nothing is found in the database then a blank entry
       hash is created and returned, otherwise an entry containing the found
       information is returned.

       A key, "exists_p", is set to 1 if an entry already exists in the
       database, otherwise it is set to 0.

       public instance (\%) add_score (\% $entry, Integer $score)

       Description: This method adds a given $score to a given $entry.  If the
       entry was marked as not existing in the database then an entry will be
       inserted, otherwise a simple update will be performed.

       NOTE: This code uses a self referential SQL call (ie set foo = foo + 1)
       which is supported by most modern database backends, but not everything
       calling itself a SQL database.

       public instance () remove_entry (\% $entry)

       Description: This method removes a given $entry from the database.  If
       the ip portion of the entry address is equal to "none" then remove any
       perl-IP entries for this address as well.

       public instance () finish ()

       Description: This method provides the necessary cleanup for the address

       private instance (String, String) _unpack_addr(string $addr)

       Description: This method splits an autowhitelist address into it's two
       components, email and ip address.
