Default How to kill spam when spamassassin marks it spam

I have looked all over the internet...trying to find procmail recipie that will simply? drop any mail marked ***SPAM*** with spam assassain to the floor or write it to a new mailbox. So far, i have found nothing that is straight forward at least to me as a newbie. I myself would like to do it on a domain wide basis most often....write to a domain wide spam mailbox and let people decide what is really not spam on a weekly basis by just going to the spam account.

Thanks for considering.

You could use a procmail recipe like this:

Code:
# SpamAssassin sample procmailrc
#
# Pipe the mail through spamassassin (replace 'spamassassin' with 'spamc'
# if you use the spamc/spamd combination)
# The condition line ensures that only messages smaller than 250 kB
# (250 * 1024 = 256000 bytes) are processed by SpamAssassin. Most spam
# isn't bigger than a few k and working with big messages can bring
# SpamAssassin to its knees.
:0fw
* < 256000
| /path/to/spamassassin --prefs-file=/path/to/.user_prefs

# Mails with a score of 15 or higher are almost certainly spam (with 0.05%
# false positives according to rules/STATISTICS.txt). Let's put them in a
# different mbox. (This one is optional.)
#:0:
#* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*
#/dev/null

# All mail tagged as spam (eg. with a score higher than the set threshold)
# is moved to "/dev/null".
:0:
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
/dev/null

# Work around procmail bug: any output on stderr will cause the "F" in "From"
# to be dropped.  This will re-add it.
:0
* ^^rom[ ]
{
  LOG="*** Dropped F off From_ header! Fixing up. "

  :0 fhw
  | sed -e '1s/^/F/'
}

I think maybe a lot of my problem is that i am running a server on unix with Plesk and it inserts itself in everything changing paths and such. So if you are not really familiar with what you are doing you get lost quickly. Here is my environment... Thanks again for taking your valuable time and trying to help..... Regards,

Default Thanks Falko

Yes...the script is right...i am sure. I am still working on where to put it in Plesk. The procmail.rc at the server level does not seem to be working. Nothing happens that i can tell. I see nothing in the logs. I think it is because that Plesk keeps things in a differerent place than normal. I am still working on it. Again thank you for your help. REGARDS
