mmh, I think the problem is that two threads could execute a query over
one connection at the same time.

no koje - I've written a plugin which reads the spam-level for the
spamcheck and validates the recipient:

        my $sth = $dbh->prepare("select count(*) as count,
MAX(spam_reject_threshold) from mailbox where username = ? HAVING count
> 0 "
                . " UNION select count(*) as count,
MAX(spam_reject_threshold) from alias where address = ? HAVING count > 0");

        $sth->execute( $address, $address );
        # Wir bekommen immer nur eine Zeile!
        my @data = $sth->fetchrow_array();
        my $count = $data[0];
        # Falls threshold null dann nehmen wir 99.99
        my $spam_reject_threshold = defined $data[1] ? $data[1] : 99.99;
        $sth->finish;


$spam_reject_threshold is written into $transaction->notes where it's
later read by the spamassassin plugin.
As you can see I need a custom query because I also check a alias-table.

My idea: every column starting with "notes_" could be automatically
imported into the transaction notes (=session variable)..
