Spam

Post by Ralph » 2006-08-22 01:11

I have just installed HMailServer and wish to integrate spam management to minimize the amount of spam. I am running an IMAP environment. Secondly I can't install Perl so ASSP, etc are out of the question. Is there an alternative?

Bram,

Thanks for that. What do you mean by "sfi-spam-filter can be used though without restrictions"? Are there no restrictions at all if I don't purchase it?

The evaluation version will not expire it will only add "evaluation version" to you HELO command and adds a header in you message.

PS If you are installng it with remote desktop and use it as a service, make sure you use the /console option otherwise you won't get to see the interface.

You can get a compiled Windows binary version of SpamAssassin from this page (direct download link here) which means that you don't need to install perl etc. It's usually not the latest version of SpamAssassin as it takes the guy who creates it a little while to create a new build when SpamAssassin do a new release, but it works like a charm, especially if you add all the SARE rulesets too.

This means you can use spamc/spamd checking which is the fast way of using SpamAssassin, and works realy well.

Hi Barry,

I can not get a single thing to work, did you have to do anything special to make it run or could you use spamd/spamc "out of the box"?

Spamd starts and runs nicely, but i cant get spamc to output any result to either cmd console or log file.

Thanks,
Tommy :)

Hi Weetabix,

You need to be using a script with the calls to spamc to make it work once spamd is up and running. There is a very good script detailed here which I adapted for my own system: http://www.hmailserver.com/forum/viewto ... 2222#12222

Found another spam filter, which includes spamassassin :
http://www.pinjo.nl/

Installation very simple, but no automatic whitelisting as far as i could see
