Re: Customizing Spam Assassin

If you search the forums, you'll find the answer. For customizing the spamassassin scores for your installation, you just edit the /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf. Again, search the forums and you should find examples. If you can't, then do a google search using the following parameter: "site:forum....

Re: Block Office Documents

I'm trying to reproduce your problem. What version of EFA are you running? Can you look at the mail messages? How are the document names encoded in the email?

Re: root password

I strongly suggest that you use ssh keys to allow access to your root account rather than setting a password. It'll also make the winscp and putty tools easier to use. Personally, I use a non admin account as my login using ssh keys, and then taking the second step of using sudo to make any changes ...

Re: DCC Plugin score

more specifically, anytime you want to override any of the spamassassin scores, you can edit the /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and add in your value e.g. I copied the BAYES scores from one of the spamassassin cf files and changed the values to something that worked better for me: # scoring too low...

Can you run a test of a spammy message and send the results? Use the following command spamassassin -D -t < [message] This will run the spam test against [message] and give you the gory results. There should be some information as to what the bayes classifier is doing. [message] will be the name of ...

No, it's all open source.

However, if you're benefiting from the software, you may wish to consider a donation to the EFA or MailWatch developers.

Re: ASK SOMETHING | how the EFA works

EFA is a bundled distribution of MailScanner, so you'll want to read the MailScanner documentation for this information.
