We are continuing to get attempts to relay mail by hacking at SASL
authentication. The problem is solved with strong pwds and swatch
watching maillog for failed attempts and then executing a script to
immediately add a tarpit rule to IPTables.

That said, swatch is a bit messy and, possibly, a tad unstable. I've
googled, freshmeated and sourceforged to death without success. Any
suggestions? I need a log watcher that can execute a script based upon
pcre in real time.
