I have successfully installed mimedefang 2.52 / spamassassin 3.0.4 /
sendmail in solaris 8.0 to filter spam mails with the following rules
1. hits >= 10 , mails are discarded silently and are quarantined.
2. hits >= 6 , mails are forwarded to a separate mail box which is read
regularly and if false positive, are redirected to the original recipients.
3. hits >=5, spamassassin report is attached to the email and is sent to
Now, some of spam mails (in fact, the numbers are quite high) are still
getting past the spamassassin filter. I have created a mailbox where the
users can redirect such false negative emails. when I do
sa-learn --spam mailbox, it returns
" Learned from 0 message(s) (1 message(s) examined)"
where as the mailbox has around 100 redirected spam mails. Is that the
right way to do it or is there anything else I can do to train spamassassin
manually? Please help..
Thanks for your help,
