-v, --verbose increase verbosity level


policy-test is a script that converts Postfix log entries on the standard input into requests to the Postfix policy daemon given as the first argument. It can be used for:
Testing the performance of a policy daemon
Pre-seeding a Greylist policy daemon with data from the logs

Note that this program is still in its very early stages of development and does only support a small subset of the normal attributes used in the Postfix policy delegation protocol. It basically supports the bare minimum to make it work with Postgrey.

Also note that a non-standard attribute is being generated: policy_test_time contains the Unix timestamp of when the client connected.
