Ugo, excellent article. It just works the same on Suse (8.* and 9.*) and CentOS4. I installed
the milter yesterday on a bunch of systems and it worked on all of them right from start.

I'm just a bit confused with this:
> Feel free to try using libsfp or libspf2 libraries. I successfully compiled the milter with libspf2 on a fedora core 1 server, but I can^Òt do it on this CentOS server. I^Òll eventually do more installs, so hopefully I^Òll be able to add SPF-enabled milter instructions, but the README does talk about it a little bit.

Do you refer to milter-spf or so? Or do you mean including spf2 in milter-greylist?

Your configure line:
/configure --libdir=/usr/local/include/spf2/

I used:
/configure --with-user=daemon --with-libspf2=/usr/local

I think if you don't use --with-libspf2 it won't link it in, so there's no spf whether
you tell it where the libraries are or not.

I would also recommend using the --with-user switch unless one wants to use what the milter
puts in as default.

I used HACK instead of FEATURE, works just the same.

Not clear what you want to say with that. Isn't both the same?
