spamassassin, 3.2.5, webmin
Posted on 2008-10-08
I am running Webmin, sendmail and spamassassin 3.2.5 (referred to as SA from now on) on a Fedora 8 box. Just for clarity, I am using the latest Horde Groupware to view my mail, but I do not think(?) that affects my question.
I am very comfortable with the command line, webmin is a convenience.
The question is, how to get SA filtering my mail properly? All I want SA to do is set the mail header as spam, and also rewrite the mail subject line to the default '****SPAM****', and let hoard filter (ingo) take care of moving it to the correct place in the user's mail folders.
Here is a list of information/observations:
- I have procmail set up to forward mail to SA with: "Feed to program /usr/bin/spamassassin"
- For testing, I have (via webmin) set the "Hits above which a message is considered spam" option to '2' instead of the default '5'.
- I have been sending spam mail to SA for learning via spamassassin -r and also tried sa-learn --spam (user)
- No subject lines for are being rewritten.
- The spamd daemon is running
- I have Bayesian filtering enabled, but the sa-update command (also the included webmin sa-update cron job) times out.
I am glad to provide any further necessary information. Can the experts help?
