Re: Decimal values for spam tests

You wouldn't happen to know if there's a way to configure SA to multiply the final score by a certain amount without editing every single rule would you? If I could multiply the score before it's returned then I could get more granular control over the threshold values in hMailServer as I'll have a ...

Re: Decimal values for spam tests

Hmmm? SpamAssassin has always returned decimal spam score values. EDIT: Oh wait...I see what you mean - the computed X-hMailServer-Reason-Score does look like it's always a whole number. Nevermind then. I've just always looked at the X-Spam-Status header scores SpamAssassin returns when tuning thing...

Re: hMailServer Administrator causing mail server to become unresponsive

Latest 5.6.7-B2425. I haven't done a fresh install since the first time I installed it probably more than 10 years ago now though...just been upgrading it and the original 2008 R2 VM it was installed on is still chugging along today haha. Not sure if there's anything about that that may be causing t...

Decimal values for spam tests

It would be great to be able to enter decimal values instead of just integers for the spam test scores as well as the spam thresholds, particularly when using it with SpamAssassin. I really want to mark my spam threshold as a x.5 value for the threshold as well as for some of the spam tests but I ne...

Re: hMailServer Administrator causing mail server to become unresponsive

Yeah, I don't know...I literally just had to restart hMailServer again because it completely stopped responding to SMTP requests after the HELO because I had the Administrator application open for too long, haha. No errors in any logs, nothing. I can run hMailServer with a year of uptime no problem ...

Re: hMailServer Administrator causing mail server to become unresponsive

I haven't really paid attention to the memory usage as the server has plenty of free memory so I'm not sure if it's actually using more memory. I doubt the issue would be just memory leak related, something else is going on that's causing this. In terms of what I mean about sluggish - switching betw...

hMailServer Administrator causing mail server to become unresponsive

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but when I spend a lot of time in hMailServer Administrator, it's responsiveness starts to becomes sluggish and so does the mail server itself (connected mail clients clearly start taking longer to load messages, change folders, save draft messages, etc)...

Re: Add custom external spam filter

I'm guessing my situation is a bit different than yours as well SorenR. Your suggested scripts indicate that you are putting in 100% confidence into the spamhaus zen list and lashback to block emails. Given the large number of customer email addresses I host, I can't do that. If it was only my compa...

Re: Add custom external spam filter

Just to clarify....I'm talking about a very "small" level of spam. On my own email account, which I've been using as my primary email for 12 years now and which aggregates email from several company mailboxes that at times have been plastered on the internet for all spammers to see, gets maybe 1-2 s...

Re: Add custom external spam filter

Thanks SorenR for digging in, but the point is that there IS spam left over after all that. I've already implemented everything else you're suggesting. The spam that IS left over that is getting through has a fairly high rate of reply-to/from addresses that have no websites on their domains. The lis...

I'm not talking about his original replies.

Clearly I had not because that was my original question. As my current se...

Re: Add custom external spam filter

Yes SorenR, that is correct, I didn't know how to access the spam score programmatically from a script because I haven't had a need to do that yet. That's kind of why I asked the question in the first place. Is that really so surprising? I have several scripts that block messages but haven't seen or...

Again, thank you for your input, but that's not what I'm asking. I'm very well versed in spam filtering and I have a very comprehensive spam protection setup at the moment. Please stay on topic and keep answers relevant to my question. I'm not interested in a beginner's framework for fixing 60% of m...

Thanks for the input SorenR but that doesn't address my question. I'm looking to modify the spam score from a script or be able to plug in an external program that can do that like SpamAssassin. So far the only real option I've been able to figure out is going the route of building a custom SpamAssa...

All of the spam domains had no website or threw out a 403 forbidden and all 25 legit domains have a valid website at the root domain. I haven't seen any spam filtering options to do th...

Add custom external spam filter

I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything specifically about this. I want to write a script or an external program that does some spam checks and either returns a score or a yes/no spam result that then adds to the hMailServer spam score. Kind of like SpamAssassin, but I can't just emulate S...

Re: Whitelisting is not working

It looks like you're right...I must have mixed it up with another setting somewhere. There was a discussion on here about being able to use wildcards in a field because it does a LIKE query so % worked in it, I can't remember what that was referencing now.

Either way, all good now :)

Re: Whitelisting is not working

Nevermind I think I got it...at some point since I originally put in the entries hMailServer must have been updated to use * instead of % because the docs now say you use *. I'll give that a try and report back if I have any issues.

Haha yes indeed I am...thanks :) I searched and found several posts that had the LockFile function quoted in their code but no Wait function so I assumed it was built-in.

Re: HmailServer & SpamAssassin : The WinSock error code is 2.

Has there been any updates to this issue? It's been a couple years and I'm still getting this.

Has your proxy that delays closing the socket fixed the issue superman20? Is there any chance we can get a copy of your proxy?

LockFile Script Occasionally Throwing An Error

Hello :) A week ago I started using the AutoBan script that contains the LockFile function that seems to be in fairly frequent use here and usually about twice a day (out of hundreds of successful runs) it throws this error in the hMail error log: "ERROR" 2060 "2018-09-04 03:44:23.381" "Script Error...
