    SpamAssassin Help

    Hey,

    I'm kinda of new to this still. But I was wondering if it was possible to implement some of these type of custom rulesets for SpamAssasin through cPanel?

    http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/CustomRulesets

    If so can anyone give me a rundown on how to do it, or point me to a walkthrough?

    Thanks!
    John

    Yes. Place your custom rulesets inside of your /.spamassassin/user_prefs file.
    Check this out: http://spamassassin.apache.org/tests_3_1_x.html

    Okay thanks that definately helps.

    I had another question regarding SpamAssassin. Will the size of this user_prefs file affect the speed in which the mail is processed?

    OK, here is another one.. (someone might know..)

    If I have spamassasin enabled for a cPanel account, which has 10 e-mail accounts.
    Is there a way to disable the spamassassin for just 1 of e-mail accounts?

    Hmm another Q. If you have mail that is being piped for your default address in the cPanel mail option, does SpamAssassin scan and process that mail?

    It seems that it does not because I have my default address set to pipe the email through a script and the emails that are received through the script doesn't seem to include the SA headers.

    I may be wrong though but if I'm not would there be a way around this?

    SA does not scan your default/catchall email account.
    You'll need to create individual email accounts to enable SA.

    So for example, jack and joe and mary @domain.com are not protected by SA unless its enabled for them? Are you sure?

    If so, how do you enable that?
