Fedora is packaging milter-greylist with GeoIP enabled at compile
the user may not have a GeoIP account; in that case syslog gets
"GeoIP is not available" messages.
You don't need a GeoIP account.
The problem is that the greylist.conf file from the RPM doesn't have
the correct path to the installed GeoIP database
You need :
in your /etc/mail/greylist.conf file
Using the provided "geoipupdate" to get a newer database will fail
with a "Invalid UserID" message, and the correct Requires aren't in
the GeoIP RPM to pull in the modules needed by the perl scripts
included, so they don't work either.
You can go to the maxmind website and download a newer copy of the
database manually fairly easily.
Install the modules for the perl script -
sudo yum install perl-libwww-perl
sudo perl /usr/share/doc/GeoIP-1.4.3/fetch-geoipdata.pl
Fetching GeoIP.dat from http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/
GeoIP database updated. Old copy is at GeoIP.dat.20080326
or add that to your monthly cron jobs.
The free database is updated monthly.
