SPAM Settings

    what do you guys use for spam settings? Do you just use spam assassin or the other things installed with Plesk? I have SA set to delete all spam above 7 after much testing and each user still gets 20-30 a day.

    I use a combination of a few different things;

    - RBL Lists
    - SpamAssassin
    - Rules Du Jour (spamassassin rules from the rules emporium)
    - DCC, Razor, Pyzor
    - qgreylist
    - qmail-scanner
    - clamav

    Have a look through this forum:


    What distro are you using? Do you have much linux admin experience (ssh..)?

    Look at http://www.asspsmtp.org this is realy kicking. I am using it for about a year now and now receiving maybe one spam message (assp didn't catch) a week. Very very effective.

    I wrote a wiki entry on how to implement it in a plesk environment. Assp runs on win32 and linux (Perl).

    Assp is a proxy smtp server, so you don't have to change anything on plesk (just some settings).

    CentOS - good - have a look around that site I linked you too. Also that ASSP looks like a decent solution as well. I'm sure you'll find everything you need between these two solutions. If not just combine them.

    Add the atomic archive with the following:

    wget -q -O - http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic.sh |sh

    2) update SA to 3.2.1
    yum update spamassassin

    3) Install dcc, razor, and pyzor
    yum install dcc razor-agents pyzor

    4) restart SA
    service spamassassin restart

    I also use rbls (sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org), qgreylist, and qmail-scanner.

    I cannot get the ASSP scripts to upload to my server; what am i doing wrong? I am in Mac OSX.

    # scp /Users/tim/asspscripts/create_emails.sh root@64.13.xx.xx:/usr/scripts

    root@64.13.xx.xx's password:

    /Users/tim/asspscripts/create_emails.sh: No such file or directory

    That is the correct path to the files, it is in my Mac Users/tim directory.
