Hi Sebastian,
when you are making changes for the enhanced plugin's configuration,
would it be possible to make the socket path configurable too?

To Florian:
Because it is of the high probability that more plugins will use the
UNIX socket communication, would it be possible to make the socket path
prefix configurable by the autoconf script instead of the hardcoded '/tmp'?
It is common to have all sockets inside the application's directory in
the '/var/run' path in RedHat's distributions.

Back to Sebastian:
Would you be also able to add an ignorelist to the spam_check?

I think that it would be good to have the option to skip some of the
SpamAssassin's checks. It would be also possible to add such feature to
the SA plugin.

I am sorry, I did not have much time recently, but I will check it for sure.

Best regards,
