Spam Trap

Post by efa-user » 27 Jul 2017 11:15

I have a number of addreses and even whole domains where i do not ever expect to receive any valid mails, would it be possible to add the ability to nominiate these as 'spam traps' whereby all mail received is fed into SA using 'sa-learn --spam' either before or after the normal scanning takes place?

ie something like what is described in the section titled "SA-Lean script coupled with Spam Trap" on this page:

I was searching for a similar feature. there are several email accounts that were closed over 10 years ago on my mail server that are still getting hammered. I have blacklisted them in EFA to cut down on backscatter and excessive traffic to and from the mail server. I occasionally go through the logs and mark them as spam in sa-learn. It would be nice to automate this process or even setup spam traps on domains that I manage. Thinking spammers might realize spam traps exist on my domains might also cut down on spam they send to my domains?

Actually I just found that you can run a filter for your spam trap then click "Message Operations" where you can flag the whole page of results to learn as spam.
