Hosts With More Than SpamAssassin

Jan 26, 2009

some good hosts that use more than just SpamAssassin (SA) for their spam filtering?

For instance, MediaTemple uses the Cloudmark plug-in, which greatly improves the stopping of spam. SA out of the box is horrible; and yes, I realize that with some tweaking it "can" be good.

SpamAssassin - Deleting Files From /home/user/.spamassassin

Jun 25, 2009

I need to clean up the .spamassassin directory for all the accounts on the server. The Bayes files are getting too big and causing mail handling issues.

How would I do that?

I assume this won't work - and don't want to try it until I hear a little feedback:

rm -f /home/*/.spamassassin/*bayes*

Basically, I need a command that will do what the above command looks like it would do - I just don't think the wildcards will work in that manner, and don't want to try it for fear of deleting items outside of the .spamassassin directory.

I'm running CentOS 5.3.x with cPanel/WHM - if it matters...

And feel free to suggest other spam blocking software - but we've gotten rather good at tweaking SA to get the job done. Just this annoyance of the bayes files growing continuously is a pain sometimes...

Universal Hosts (uni-hosts) Two Week Mini Review

Apr 2, 2008

I was in the market for a new dedicated server after a couple of years with my previous provider. The previous provider did nothing wrong but they were no longer competitive when it came to CPU and memory.

I moved first to geekrack. And I left them after a week and a half as they never were able to get my rDNS records setup.

I found Universal Hosts on this forum and gave them a shot. I had asked for an operating system that they didn't offer normally (Debian 64 bit) and they said that they could do it. However, when my server was setup it was 32 bit Debian instead. They apologized and had Debian 64 bit setup less than 24 hours later.

When I asked them to get rDNS records setup it took a few hours but they were setup correctly and they worked.

Universal Hosts is also a BurstNet reseller but compared to my other attempt at using a BurstNet reseller they are fantastic. While the initial config was incorrect they worked quickly to fix it and were very professional about it.

So after two weeks - so far so good. Keep up the good work UniHosts!

Apache :: Virtual Hosts With Windows 8 Hosts File

Aug 11, 2013

I am running Apache2.2, PHP5.I have been running with virtual hosts on a Windows 7 environment fine for a couple of years successfully, but have just had to move to a Windows 8 environment.It looks like Apache and PHP have installed and are working fine, but my Virtual hosts are now not being recognised. From what I can tell, it is the Windows 8 hosts file that is having a problem, as it looks as though it is now just setup to Block websites.

If I make the host file just have the one line127.0.0.1 localhost entry, then the very first Virtual Host from my apache config file will come up, but the rest are not found.If I put the usual aliasname is appears as though my website works momentarily and then is blocked..

Directadmin Hosts Or Cpanel Hosts

Aug 16, 2008

Recently I stumbled along a host on here with a good rep and that uses direct admin.

Because they were very nice on the live support I signed up to see what direct admin was like.

Its very diferent from cpanel. Some parts seem to be harder to use like the phpmyadmin requires the username and password to the database you created not the control panel username and password like cpanel. Although I guess that could be a good security feature just in case some one gets into the control panel they can not get into the phpmyadmin, then again if they are smart and were able to get into the control panel they could get into ftp and look what the username and password is on the config file for the script you are using.

The bandwidth meter seems to be better in direct admin although I think its acting up for me as its putting yesterdays bandwidth on todays. I was told by the host that it updates every 2 hours and at first it did but now its gone to every day. Oh and unlike cpanel this bandwidth meter includes bandwith used by the control panel.

Niether one from what I can tell counts sftp though at least for the hosts I have right now.

May 19, 2007

I'm running the latest port version on FreeBSD of Postfix, Spamassassin (Razor & Pryzor), ClamAV, and Amavisd-new. I haven't gotten any spam for a while. The 2-3 days including today i've been getting 10+ spams per day. This seemed to happen after the update of spamassasin recently.

Anyone else experiencing this? My rules are pretty quick, at spam-score "5" I reject the mail.

I installed SpamAssasin and set it up in DA, I also use Spam Filter option in DirectAdmin (DA).

The problem is that if someone send me an email which contains any adult word in the body and a regular subject then it will not go to the Spam box, but if that email contains any adult word in the subject and no matter the body has adult word or not it will go to Spam box.

How do i send all the emails contain adult word in body to Spam box?

i have Dovecot installed.

Install Spamassassin ..?

Jul 4, 2009

here to install spamassassin but however have a few questions as im new to doing technical things in ssh.


On step 3 of the tutorial, we are asked to change things in the /etc/exim.conf file, what is the proper command to navigate to this file and how to replace those text?


The global spamassassin config file is in /etc/mail/spamassassin/

You'll want to make sure that you have the correct call to spamc in the spamcheck transport in your exim.conf:
transport_filter = /usr/bin/spamc -u ${lookup{$domain}lsearch*{/etc/virtual/domainowners}{$value}}

For the lines i quoted, im not sure what i have to do here and how to do it.

Lastly how do i know if im installing latest version of spamas and how to test weather it is working against spam?

SpamAssassin Setup

Jul 23, 2008

I am setting up spam assassin white list and it says I can put * so does that mean it will white list everything from ?

Whitelist and blacklist addresses are now file-glob-style patterns, so, *, or * will all work. Specifically, * and ? are allowed, but all other metacharacters are not. Regular expressions are not used for security reasons.

Is there any way to define black lists for a specific domain?

Like, a file for each user:,

And when that user receives email, Mailscanner will check server-wide filter AND domain specific filter.

Any advanced MS/SA users?

Configure Exim And Spamassassin

May 20, 2009

I need to configure Spamassassin to not check outgoing mails

So I need to check only mails that are hosts on my mail server, but mails which relay not to be checked.

configuration of Spamassassin in exim:

warn spam = nobody
warn message = X-Spam_score: $spam_score

X-Spam_score_int: $spam_score_int

X-Spam_bar: $spam_bar

X-Spam_report: $spam_report
condition = ${if eq {$acl_m1}{local_to_check_spam} {yes}{no}}
!condition = ${if eq {$acl_m0}{local_to_check} {yes}{no}}

Maybe it's need just one line in Spamassassing

Manually Enabling SpamAssassin

Mar 2, 2008

I have a dedicated server. It is a Fedora Core 6. It came with "Plesk 30 domain license". However, this license of Plesk doesn't have SpamAssassin enabled. In order to get the license with SpamAssassin, it costs an extra $30 a month.

I believe SpamAssassin by default is in fact installed on the sever, but some of my users are reporting that they are getting Spam. How can I check is SpamAssassin is running? How do I configure SpamAssassin to filter spam on all the e-mail addresses that are created in Plesk?

I have SSH access to the server.

SpamAssassin On CentOS Misconfigured

Jan 3, 2008

The problem I currently have is that all e-mails tagged by SpamAssassin as spam are deleted even though they are supposed to be moved to a different "probably-spam" file. In addition, I'd like to use the spamc + spamd configuration and I'm not using it now.

I tested that procmail is installed on my CentOS 5 server that's also using sendmail.

yum remove spamassassin // In case it is pre-installed. It was the last time I did this.

// Download it at
wget [url]

tar xvfz Mail-SpamAssassin-3.2.3.tar.gz

cd /Mail-SpamAssassin-3.2.3

perl build/check_dependencies // Checks which perl module dependencies are missing that need to be installed before proceeding. Then install them

perl Makefile.PL


make install

Upload your own spamassassin/local.conf to /etc/mail/spamassassin

# This is the right place to customize your installation of SpamAssassin.
# See 'perldoc Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf' for details of what can be
# tweaked.
# Only a small subset of options are listed below

# Add *****SPAM***** to the Subject header of spam e-mails
# rewrite_header Subject **SPAM**

# Save spam messages as a message/rfc822 MIME attachment instead of
# modifying the original message (0: off, 2: use text/plain instead)
# report_safe 1

# Set which networks or hosts are considered 'trusted' by your mail
# server (i.e. not spammers)
# trusted_networks 212.17.35.

# Set file-locking method (flock is not safe over NFS, but is faster)
# lock_method flock

# Set the threshold at which a message is considered spam (default: 5.0)
required_score 3.9

# Use Bayesian classifier (default: 1)
# use_bayes 1

# Bayesian classifier auto-learning (default: 1)
bayes_auto_learn 0

# Set headers which may provide inappropriate cues to the Bayesian
# classifier
# bayes_ignore_header X-Bogosity
# bayes_ignore_header X-Spam-Flag
# bayes_ignore_header X-Spam-Status
Make /home/tero world executable (chmod 751)

Upload.procmail to /home/tero // My e-mail user's name.

:0fw: spamassassin.lock
* < 256000
| spamassassin

# Mails with a score of 13 or higher are almost certainly spam. Let's delete them.
* ^X-Spam-Level: *************

# All mail tagged as spam (eg. with a score higher than the set threshold)
# is moved to "probably-spam".
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

# Work around procmail bug: any output on stderr will cause the "F" in "From"
# to be dropped. This will re-add it.
* ^^rom[ ]
:0 fhw
| sed -e '1s/^/F/'

I figured that this might be a permissions problem but what I can do without risking security?

Transfer Spamassassin Settings To New Setup

May 11, 2009

My new server is set up and running fine but on the test account email I am getting a lot of spam again. I know spamassissin needs to "learn" but I don't want to go through that again.

Assuming I just need to copy my "experienced" spamassassin files over to the new server, what files need to be copied to give my new set up the same spam protection as the old?

Where does spamassassin store what its "learned"?

I am running CentOS and Cpanel
