Quarantine oddity

Post by pdwalker » 24 Mar 2015 11:18

I've configured EFA to store a copy of non spam into quarantine

Code: Select all

Non Spam Settings
[EFA] Do you want to  DISABLE  storing non spam ? [y/N]: n
and I've configured spam to be delivered (so people can check for false positives)

Code: Select all

Spam Settings
[EFA] Do you want to  ENABLE  spam delivery? [y/N] y
With these settings,
- clean mail is delivered
- likely spam is delivered
- high spam is quarantined, no notifications are given
(I assume this is the correct and expected behaviour)

In my Recent Messages list, I can see (by color coding) my
- clean mail,
- likely spam,
- high spam.

However, under Reports/Message Operations or Message Listing, I can only see my
- clean mail,
- high spam.

The likely spam messages are not listed.

Furthermore, under my Recent Messages list, clicking on the clean or high spam message displays the message details with the Quarantine section at the bottom allowing me to "train" spamassassin using SA Learn. However, my "likely" spam messages do not.

It appears that likely spam messages are not getting a copy into quarantine? As a result, I cannot train these messages as ham or spam.

Does any one else see this behaviour?

How can I train the marginal messages to get better accuracy later on with the bayesian analysis if that option is unavailable in the UI?

Does anyone have any insights into this behaviour?

Nevermind, it is a function of Mailscanner controlled by /etc/MailScanner.conf, specifically

1/ Non Spam Actions =
2/ Spam Actions =
3/ High Spam Actions =

It is clear that EFA-Configure only modifies the first two MailScanner configuration options.
