and how could I know that the smtp server has disconnected from the
policy server? what does postfix send for knowing it? I mean like it's
tcpwrapped by spawn I don't know either some is connected or not....
it's just running waiting for attributes... For example, after I send
an email (so after connecting to an smtpd proccess and after sending
the mail and the quit command to postfix smtpd) if I do the following
ps I see :
$ ps aux | grep pl && ps aux | grep smtp
cyrus 68585 0.2 0.4 23784 7852 ?? Ss 4:20PM 0:00.08 /usr/
bin/perl /usr/local/etc/postfix/postfix-qreject-frontales.pl (perl5.8.8)
postfix 68584 0.0 0.1 13704 2232 ?? S 4:20PM 0:00.00
spawn -z -n 127.0.0.1:2222 -t inet user=cyrus argv=/usr/local/etc/
postfix 68581 0.0 0.2 29456 4236 ?? S 4:20PM 0:00.01
smtpd -n smtp -t inet -u
postfix 68589 0.0 0.1 13828 2428 ?? S 4:20PM 0:00.01 smtp
-n smtp-amavis -t unix -u -o smtp_data_done_timeout=1200 -o
postfix 68591 0.0 0.2 28432 3692 ?? S 4:20PM 0:00.01
so I have a spawn proccess for each the policy daemon (frontales.pl)
and the own policy daemon running in this example with the user cyrus...

That's why policy daemon closes all mysql connections, all file
descriptors and all before printing action to STDOUT later clears
hash table of attributes and starts a new cycle

That's why I do it this way, so it's done well then.

Thanks a lot really Wietse.
