SpamAssasin default email

    Where or how do i change the default email that spamassasin adds to emails it sees as spam?

    i tried changing the customer-service@sw-soft.com email address on the install.bat file in the SWsoft\Plesk\Additional\SpamAssassin folder but it didn't take.

    I did restart the SpamAssassin service within the CP.

    example of an email below:

    Spam detection software, running on the system "nttr-vipweb.nttr.int", has
    identified this incoming email as possible spam. The original message
    has been attached to this so you can view it (if it isn't spam) or block
    similar future email. If you have any questions, see
    customer-service@sw-soft.com for details.

    legible. ------_=_NextPart_001_01C5355D.B2C7B129 Content-Type:

    0.5 FREE_TRIAL BODY: Free Trial
    0.0 HTML_MESSAGE BODY: HTML included in message
    0.2 NORMAL_HTTP_TO_IP URI: Uses a dotted-decimal IP address in URL

    0.8 REMOVE_PAGE URI: URL of page called "remove"
    1.9 WEIRD_PORT URI: Uses non-standard port number for HTTP
    0.7 UNSUB_SCRIPT URI: URL of CGI script has unsubscribe or remove
    1.1 REMOVE_REMOVAL_NEAR List removal information

    The original message was not completely plain text, and may be unsafe to
    open with some email clients; in particular, it may contain a virus,
    or confirm that your address can receive spam. If you wish to view
    it, it may be safer to save it to a file and open it with an editor.

    Thanks in advance

    Opened a plesk ticket on this today.

    The email is also generated for every piece of spam it sees.

    Any news on this? I would also like to customise this automated email. It seems to ignore 'Spam detection alert text' in the local personal settings.

    To redifine notice sender address you have to recompile spamassasin. YOu can do it in the following way:

    1. Go to %plesk_dir%\spamassasin
    2. Execute: "C:\program file\sw\soft\plesk\additional\perl\bin\perl.exe" "c:\program files\swsoft\plesk\additional\spamassasin\makefile.pl"

    Here you will be asked to enter admin e-mail :)
    Enter one and push Enter to go on.
    3. Execute: nmake
    4. Execute : name install

    Thant's all folks :)

    Awesome... next question, is there a way to modify the message that is displayed? I'd like to customize my default message to be custom to my business and also provide some useful URL's to the client.

    Did you find any solution?
  9. rmmoore80

    rmmoore80 Guest

    Yes I did... you need to locate the file %plesk_dir%\additional\perl\site\etc\mail\spamassassin and you should see a file called misc_10.cf. I edited that file and it worked perfectly. You can also set different options in the local.cf in that same location.

    It will be very similar to the windows solution.
