    Does anyone have a good, working spamassassin config? I can't seem to get mine to operate like I want. There are way too many config files in too many different locations (many of which are duplicates of others) that I can't tell which one to change.

    It also appears as though the autolearn isn't working. I have over 3000 spam and 3000 ham trained manually, but I would like autolearn to work so it can fine tune itself.

    You want to stop SPAM...

    Go to Mail under the Server section, select " Enable MAPS spam protection (This is the DNSBL)" and enter the following as the Map Zone:

    "sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org"

    For more info go here:

    It is amazing how much spam it stops!

    Hope this helps!

    It appears that some has stopped , although some is still coming through. The messages that do come through arent marked as spam though. What else can I do with Spamassassin to prevent these messages from coming through?

    Known IP addresses from Spammers will not even show up in your server, your server will reject them if they are found in the DNSBL, so you will not see them going into the spam folders.

    Lookup the IP addresses of the SPAM e-mails that got through and it will tell you if they got added to the SBL or XBL database.

    http://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/index.lasso

    Most likely if it is Spam the senders IP address will get added to the database and you will no longer receive any further email from that IP.

    The best combination you can have to block spam is, SPAM Assasin and the DNSBL "sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org".

    Hope this helps!

    You can always try what I did assuming your using smartermail..

    Step 1. Buy spamassin package and install.

    Step 2. Watch the spam flood in.

    Step 3. Uninstall spamassin.

    Step 4. Buy declude and message sniffer.

    Step 5. Get ready for the phones to ring. Everyone thinks their mail is broken because they havent gotten 30+ pieces of spam by the time they wake up in the morning.

    I have a good ammount of experience with spamassin on linux and the windows plesk configuration just doesnt work. Train it all you want.

    We use MailEnable Professional. If Spamassassin for Windows / Plesk doesnt work then why would they even advertise it?

    Does declude integrate with Plesk? What is so special about it?

    Thanks.

    Declude is a mailserver plugin. Currently it only supports IMail and Smartermail. It does not interface with plesk, it ties directly into the mailserver.

    Check out http://www.declude.com and http://www.sortmonster.com

    We use a combo of declude and message sniffer. On a 1000+ user mailserver we block over 25,000 pieces of spam a week. Users of smartermail can whitelist through the webmail interface.

    Forgot to mention. Declude is working on mailenable support although I think it wont happen until next year sometime.

    how about multiple RBLs ? comma seperated ? space seperated ?

    edit: figured it out .. ; seperated .. for example ..

    sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org;bl.csma.biz;dnsbl.ahbl.org;korea.services.net;relays.ordb.org

    Is that the actual line you use? I am only familiar with spamhaus.org. What are some other good ones?

    filter by words?

    How can you filter by subject or body words? I get so much spam that has harsh words that could easily be filter out. How can I do this with Mailenable or Spamassassin?

    I just used that line in our PLESK and it has reduced spam tremendously!

    Thanks!

    hey yall, I used this below
    xbl.spamhaus.org;sbl.spamhaus.org;bl.spamcop.net

    works pretty good! splitting the spamhaus.org's up worked better for me...
