spamc -u foo -d foohost foohost resolves to three A-records. Two are down, one answers. Spamc tries all three a-ok. Wonderful. spamc -u foo -d foohost -x Spamc tries three times to the same (random) host and gives up if it doesn't respond. I understand this is intentional, why? I don't want the message to pass unrated if spamc cannot connect to any host, EX_TEMPFAIL is preferred. I would like to have it try three times to connect to different hosts.

I have similar problem. I have "main" spamd on one machine and backup on other machine. the '-x' breaks usage of multiple IP's provided by '-d'. This is documented, but I don't understand why? Is there any reason why should spamc contact spamd servers differently when -x is provided? I'm sorry if this is a different problem - I may open new bug/wishlist report.
