Just finished writing the next part of the DSpam documentation that was needed. It still needed a proper startup and shutdown procedure. So I started in writing a shell script that would take care of it and use that in the launchd scripts which would take care of starting DSpam at boot time.

It turned out to be simpler than I thought, I only needed to uncomment: ServerPID /var/run/dspam.pid in the dspam.conf file to get a proper pid file which I could use to feed the kill command as Mac OS X hasn’t got the killproc command. When I had this figured out the rest was simple. Read the results on the starting DSpam page and use it to your liking.
