It looks like your "event" name is "sm-mta", which there is no event for in
the "event" folder.  You should create a sm-mta event by copying the
sendmail file to sm-mta.  I don't remember, but you also may have to edit
the new file and change references from sendmail to sm-mta.

Subject: graphdefang and sendmail's rbl

I can't keep track in graphdefang of the "reject" blacklisting that sendmail
is doing.  I tried just adding "reject" to the graphs but it isn;t itwant to
get this as well in my graphs because it will be useful to see how much mail
is being blocked because of blacklisting alone on behalf of sendmail.

I see the part for sendmail in the "event" folder in graphdefang, and I
think it's being called, but I don't know how to use it- I'm assuming this
is not a job for mimedefang/spamassassin to put into the log because
sendmail is doing it first.  In case it's my log format that's a little off,
here are two sample lines (each, all on one line):

Nov 26 16:25:26 gaia sm-mta[28341]: ruleset=check_relay,
arg1=131-183-28.dial.terra.cl, arg2=,
relay=131-183-28.dial.terra.cl [], reject=550 5.7.1 Mail from
dynamic IP rejected - see
Nov 26 16:20:06 gaia sm-mta[10372]: ruleset=check_relay,
arg1=0x50a46d86.arcnxx15.adsl-dhcp.tele.dk, arg2=,
relay=0x50a46d86.arcnxx15.adsl-dhcp.tele.dk [], reject=550
5.7.1 Mail from open relay/proxy rejected - see

i've gotten 'mail_in' 'mail_out' 'spam' and 'bad_filename' but don't
understand how else I would graph something (or say "I want THIS to be
graphed") without calling it specifically like that.

Thanks for any help!!!
