I'm wondering if it would be possible to include LUA support.

I've made an attempt to add a bit of site-enhancement some time ago, based
on what LUA callbacks allow, but then I gave up since recompiling each
time an update is done wasn't OK for the set-up where I wished to have
that running (at a customer).

If you're interested I can check for that older message; it was related to
avoiding messages coming from spammers pretending to be on the local
domain, a thing that opendkim detects, but doesn't allow any actions just
from within the config.

It continues to baffle and worry people when they are getting messages
from 'themselves', much more than when those arrive from some weird

Thank you,
