My webhost says that I can enable "spam assassin" on my email account for free. But if I want "Postini", then I will have to pay extra. I need spam protection on my email account. But I don't want any false positives because I don't even bother scanning through my spam box.
How much better is Postini than spam assassin? I know Google is trying to buy Postini. So I figure it must be pretty good. But is it so much better than than free one?
Hey, how many of you guys are using Plesks Spam Assassin, if so how do you update it or give it a new list of places to block? I see no difference with it enabled or not and get about 20 spam messages per night and 40 total a day.
I am trying to install Spam assassin on Plesk 12.0.18 on windows server 2012 r2 . I am getting error:
Error: Unable to set Plesk SpamAssassin 3.3.2 as the default Spam Filter: defpackagemng failed: Execute spammng.exe --check failed with error code 1: Unable generate the unique file name by template D:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditionalPerlsiteetcmailspamassassinlocal.cf[*].bak: directory D:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditionalPerlsiteetcmailspamassassin does not exist
I have tried re-installing and installing spam assassin from command and as per the solution given in below KB: URL....But I an still not able to install in on the server. I have checked all directory paths are correctly located.
Rather than just tagging the subject with ***SPAM***. Am I going to have to recompile spam assassin in order to get that working? I have a client of mine who wants all spam just removed before it hits his inbox. Is there a setting somewhere in cpanel that I am missing for this? Possible just to apply it to one domain name?
Is there not a way to change the default for the spam assassin level when creating a new mail account and still have the ability to change it individually if needed?
I changed it in the spamassassin config file /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and in the server mail settings, but it still reads 7 when I create a new account and go to turn on the spam filtering. Does this value come from the db?
I can write a script making api calls? but surely there is a way to change the defaults and still have the ability to change these from the default for each account if needed?
Just wondering what's your take with Postini mail filtering services. I was expecting a huge difference but even with the filter sensativity at max threshhold *5*,, 15-30+ spam emails still seem to trickle in. The built in *junk filter* in Outlook always seems to catch the stuff that get's past by the Postini filters.
Just wondering for those using Postini, how do you feel about the accuracy of the spam filtering services.
I've got a domain name ("problemdomain.com") on my server (CentOS 4, WHM/cPanel) that has been set up with Postini for quite some time. All has been working & routing correctly. I recently changed to a new server with a new IP address. I transferred the account so that the DNS is setup identically on the new server. The only thing that changed is the main server IP, and the IP addresses that ns1.myserver.com and ns2.myserver.com resolve to. That propagation went through today and should be well set in.
Now, whenever you send an email to someone on this domain, it gets bounced back with the following:
This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
Technical details of permanent failure: PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550-exprod8mx214.postini.com (psmtp.com) [22.214.171.124] is currently not 550-permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into 550-the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP 550 Authentication turned on in your email client.
The way I have the DNS setup on the server for the MX records is as follows: problemdomain.com., 14400, IN MX, 100, laserskinsurgery.com.s8a1.psmtp.com. problemdomain.com., 14400, IN MX, 200, laserskinsurgery.com.s8a2.psmtp.com. problemdomain.com., 14400, IN MX, 300, laserskinsurgery.com.s8b1.psmtp.com. problemdomain.com., 14400, IN MX, 400, laserskinsurgery.com.s8b2.psmtp.com.
This DNS is exactly the way it was setup before when it was working. Any ideas what could be causing this?

I see in the plesk documentation that the screen to enable SPAM filtering for an individual there is an option to "Move spam to the Spam folder". I don't see that option so I am wondering if it is only available on some versions of Plesk, or in combination with certain mail servers. How to make that option available?
We are having some big issues with a spam bot on the server. We can remove the bot but could you please explain, IN DETAIL , how to configure the NAT to prevent outbound port 25 connections to the internet except from our real mail servers on with windows server 2003. Currently, the only firewall on this system is the standard windows one.
through some accounts on the server and the amount of spam in their mail queue is really frustrating. I had to set admin accounts for each site I run and the spammers have discovered them, so I am looking for a ssh command where I can just easily clean all the spam out. I tried cat /dev/null > /var/mail/"the username" but that didn't work.
I just got this from EasyAntiSpam. Unless my address is harvested from the HostingCon database, I've certainly never been in touch with them. Disappointing either way. Matt:

I have a linux server with shared hosting ,now for couple of days one of my client face problem regarding spam with gmail,I have also cross-checked all the mandatory records,and we have already create MX,SPF & reverse dns record with domain keys for that domain.
We're using whm/cpanel and we're always up to date with the latest upgrades (with all our scripts).
2 weeks ago, we receive a notification from SpamCop saying that our server was sending out spam. We verified everything and found nothing. 2 days ago, same story.
We tried looking at our logs and found nothing. Does this mean that there's a security hole somewhere? How can we find out from where the spammer is sending his viagra emails from ? We do not want to be permanently banned because of a spammer.
I guess the economy must be hitting them hard. They have resorted to unsolicited commercial email, everyone's favourite.
I hope this finds you well. I am currently attempting to reach out to companies that offer web hosting services and either use, or have used, Parallels Plesk Panel as a part of the service offerings. The goal is to re-introduce Parallels Plesk Panel and hopefully revive any previously established relationships. This includes looking into why the Parallels Plesk Panel business slowed, or stopped completely, within your organization.
We are working very hard to establish a reputable channel within the hosting marketplace. In order to do so we need to look at what is currently working and what is not currently working. The best place to begin this research is with companies that have used us, but now don't really offer our products. With that said, are you available for a phone call to discuss?
My goal is to understand:
* Do you currently offer control panels, if so, is Parallels Plesk Panel a part of your offerings?
* If you are no longer offering (pushing) Parallels Plesk Panel, is there a reason?
* Would you be receptive to some sort of "trial" program to re-introduce you to Parallels Plesk Panel and our Service Provider Partnership Program?
I look forward to your response and hopefully speaking with you soon.
