Spamassassin Setup & Configuration

There are four basic options for Spamassassion:

  1. Off - no filtering.
  2. Flag - messages that Spamassassin suspects to be spam are flagged with *****SPAM***** in the header. You can then set your email program to move flagged messages to s a spam folder for later review if you wish.
  3. Hold - messages that Spamassassin believes to be spam are moved to a separate spam folder. If you wish to use this option please CONTACT US so we may setup an auto-delete function for the spam folder, otherwise it will quickly fill up and use your alloted mailbox storage. Once auto-delete is setup your spam will be saved for 7 days, so you can retrieve a message if one was mistakenly marked as spam.
  4. Delete - messages that Spamassassin determines to be spam are deleted. Deleted messages are not retrievable, so a moderate score is suggested at first. We find 5 or 6 to be a good starting place for deleting message.
