spamassassin (server side)

Anyone know how to call spamassassin 2.5x from procmailrc??? I think
I’ve got it, but it’s not flagging any messages. I don’t want to MOVE
messages, just flag them, because all my users are pop users and I want
them to be able to filter stuff out in their own individual mail programs.

Re: spamassassin (server side)

Does this mean I’ll be protected by spamassasin soon?!?? :slight_smile:

Sorry I don’t have specific experience with it :frowning:

Ahg! it’s driving me crazy. My test messages aren’t being flagged with
the spamassassin headers but yet procmail.log is reporting the creation
of spamassassin user prefs files?? so apparently it’s running, just not
doing anything?? I got the config on it set to create a wrapper report
message, attach the suspected spam, and use the header SPAM
[mesg subject] … for easy filtering … but… it’s not DOING that!! gr…

I’ll ask a friend if he’ll help (he has experience with SA), but I can’t
guarantee that he’ll do anything over the weekend.

I think I figured it out. The CPAN archive did not install all the
scripts to make the daemon run etc. I’m going to install from RPM
because that should do it!

Cool, I think my ISP uses it because my emails come to me with “SPAM” in the
subject and I just filter them out.

I have totally revamped a PSP newsgroup into a free speech newsgroup…

All of the “clique” that was there before have run off to a private news
server.

Such fun.

Re: spamassassin (server side)

You are a joke. You post in the PSP ngs for business reasons…not free
speech reasons.

Works great.

The only problem is the laffady joke list.

Last days joke email, I had to recover from the trash, because spamassasin
thought a joke about penis enlargement is a spam.

Re: spamassassin (server side)

Shena, is there a way to teach spamassasin that some messages it marks
as SPAM are actually good? One of my newsletters (which has a lot of
advertising in it) is getting filtered. Luckily, I’m putting the SPAM in
a queue instead of deleting it.

I already set spamassasin to 7.

So oply about 10% of the joke list newslaters are filtered out.
Most times because of stupid advertising.

One time because of a joke about penis enlargement.

Yes. Take the full message with headers and save it as a file in your
directory. Then run sa-learn on it.

man sa-learn for information

the command would be:

sa-learn --ham --file msg.txt (or whatever the file name is)

Re: spamassassin (server side)

Thanks Shena! So far, it’s working out well. It’s caught all but one
SPAM and filters only one newsletter. I’m going to start the procmail
filter so that I don’t have to POP the SPAM, now that I’m comfortable
with how well it’s working.
