bradfuller1959 Posted October 29, 2007 Share Posted October 29, 2007 apologies for the typo in the "title".... can't seem to edit that... I think I understand the general rule that mail from a "whitelisted" address is always passed on... but I'm getting a steady flow of spam "from" whitelisted addresses with very high scores from spam assassin. (IE where a spammer has used/guessed a "from" address I have whitelisted, or has used my address as the "from" address) EG http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1501634654z2...ddfbe73dbea180z says: <snip> X-SpamCop-Checked: X-SpamCop-Disposition: Blocked SpamAssassin=36 X-SpamCop-Whitelisted: x so I still get the mail.. Is it possible to set a "max" threshold for spam assassin (say 30 ?) IE so that mail with scores "above" this will still be moved to held mail regardless of whitelist settings? If any of my genuine whitelisted correspondents can trigger that sort of spam assassin score in a "real" email it deserves to be blocked :^) I appreciate this may not be terchnically possible if the whitelist check is done before anything else, but the fact that the message includes the spamassassion "info" along with the "whitelist" info gives me hope that the two bits of data can be used together!! thanks for a great tool .. I haven't seen a virus email for 3 years and I know you catch about 150+ spam a day for me - so this is no big deal... just thought I'd ask... cheers brad Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
