I will wait some days and check it again (because yet I would not know, which SELECT to use). My system is a very small mailer, so you could consider it as a test system.

For example, if I have two sites reporting data to me, one of which reports hundreds of messages per day and one that reports millions, the rate limits we compute will need to be different for each of them, rather than one rate that applies to everyone. Providing your reporter-id in the query tells the REPUTE server who you are and thus how to select the limit you should be enforcing.

Ok. I just checked that table and as I am the only reporter to myself, this is "1".

Any yet I am not sure, how to submit things from my side to elsewhere. I read about creating a GPG key pair and signing things. What exactly needs to be sineg? the opendkim's stats file? _at_Andreas: do you know how that works? Maybe you'd like a phone call? :)

_at_Murray: I find that very interesting stuff. When Patrick Ben Koetter and I were at the MAAWG in Paris, do I remember correctly that you spoke exactly from this reputation system?

Kind regards
