#1: Spam Question

Posted on 2008-04-14 04:34:33 by mtek

Hi,

I'm running Spamassassin on my mailserver. I have a cron job that
runs sa update to update the rules. However, I'm still getting 50
SPAM messages a day???

I thought this was supposed to prevent all that from getting
through.......

Can anyone offer some advice?

Thank you,

John

Sure....

1. Pick a better place for SpamAssassin advice. comp.mail.sendmail is
for discussion of the Sendmail MTA. SpamAssassin is not Sendmail,
although you can hook SpamAssassin into Sendmail in a variety of ways.
General "SpamAssassin is not working" issues are better directed to
SpamAssassin-specific fora. See
http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/MailingLists

2. SpamAssassin is not a "switch it on and spam vanishes" magic wand. It
is a toolkit. It *can* be extremely effective, but if you don't know or
want to know much about spam or about how SA works or about how the
configuration choices available to you with SpamAssassin can have mixed
effects, maybe SpamAssassin is not the best choice for you.

Nothing will be 100% effective at stopping spam. However, this sounds
more like a SpamAssassin issue than a sendmail issue. Have you tried the
SpamAssassin mailing list?
