Spamsnake allowing blacklisted files thorugh
 
Hi

I followed Rocky's excellent tut for spamsnake, it's been in service with us now for a couple of months and is exceptional but for one niggling issue I can't get round.

If I log in to the mailwatch page and add a sender/recipient to the blacklist, next message that comes through for that sender/recipient pair is marked as blacklisted but still delivers to the recipient.

How do I set it so that those blacklisted do not get delivered?

Many thanks

How are these options set in your configuration

Code:

Spam Actions =
Is Definitely Spam =

Thanks TopDog

Spam Actions = deliver
High Scoring Spam Actions = delete

The High Scoring Spam Action is the the one I expected to be dropping my blacklisted mail.

Cheers

That's the problem, you can either delete or store to quarantine it on the server.

Thanks for the quick reply

Will that then take out all emails flagged up as spam (6 or higher on spamassassin)?

as we get quite a few scoring 6 to 10 that are ligit

Yes it will, if you are getting such a high number of false positives, your system may not be configured correctly. You either fix that or move the scores up.

Ok

So anything I add to the blacklist in MailWatch is only counted as spam, not High Scoring spam. so I need to blacklist elsewhere then me thinks.

Cheers

If you set this option then all blacklisted email will be seen as high scoring spam.

Code:

Definite Spam Is High Scoring = yes

That's got the desired result.

Thanks for the time Topdog, much appreciated.

Cheers
