SpamAssassin is a great tool for detecting spam. Although it may be a bit ‘bloated’ and resource hungry, I still like to use it. Whether or not you want to use it is up to you. I’ve heard of others trading this step out for spamd but I haven’t gotten around to integrating it properly. So, SpamAssassin it is! You can read more about SpamAssassin by visiting their web site at http://spamassassin.apache.org/.
Edit the /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf file:
Add the below to the bottom of the file and edit the RED TEXT.
ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::BayesStore::MySQL bayes_sql_dsn DBI:mysql:maia bayes_sql_username vscan bayes_sql_password vscan_user_password auto_whitelist_factory endif ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::SQLBasedAddrList user_awl_dsn DBI:mysql:maia user_awl_sql_username vscan user_awl_sql_password vscan_user_password bayes_auto_expire 0 endif # Change the below to reflect your correct internal and external networks. internal_networks 192.168.1.0/24 trusted_networks 192.168.1.0/24 123.456.789.0/24
Configure RAZOR for reporting:
Change “email@example.com” and “some_password” in the register line.
# su - vscan $ razor-admin -discover $ razor-admin -create $ razor-admin -register -l -firstname.lastname@example.org -pass=some_password $ exit
The above user should be an actual email address you check. The password can be any password you’d like. It’s only needed by razor2 to identify and report spam.
