With the utility getsenderip you can take the sender IP and append it to a text file, the syntax is:
getsenderip [-s num] outwhere out is the file where IPs are stored, with the -s option you can skip first num IPs in the header of the mail. The script contrib/dot-qmail-storeip is an example of use into your .qmail file: you can use into a .qmail-spam to add other IPs to your private spammer list, and a .qmail-friends for the good IPs (use a different output file for the two system!!).
