Default Spam Filter isp3.0.1

Just installed it today. It seems that amavis spam handing got changed from RC2.


$final_virus_destiny = D_DISCARD; # (defaults to D_BOUNCE)
$final_banned_destiny = D_BOUNCE; # (defaults to D_BOUNCE)
$final_spam_destiny = D_REJECT; # (defaults to D_REJECT)
$final_bad_header_destiny = D_PASS; # (defaults to D_PASS), D_BOUNCE suggested


$final_virus_destiny = D_BOUNCE;
$final_spam_destiny = D_PASS;
$final_banned_destiny = D_BOUNCE;
$final_bad_header_destiny = D_PASS;

I looked into it because email that was higher than SPAM kill level from the console was leaking through.

Any thoughts???

The spam kill level is set in ISPConfig for every policy individually and not in this file. the setting in the rc2 was wrong as it caused nmail to be deleted even if spam scanning was deactivated for an account or domain.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Same on my side...

I cannot find the way for emails tagged above the "Kill level" to be killed, for real. Any idea ?

(I upgraded from the to the 3.0.1 version, might it be linked ?)

Same problem here. On the normal policy setting it is now passing things that are even marked spam in the logs.

Mar 29 17:42:14 blacksun amavis[1433]: (01433-01) Passed SPAM, [] [] <bambikay@XXXXX.org> -> <bambikay@XXXXX.org>, Message-ID: <20090329224212.8A70CA344@blacksun.XXXXXXXXX.com >, mail_id: D69Pwx2bjIMt, Hits: 29.839, size: 2327, queued_as: 8286DA345, 1675 ms

Before upgrading to 3.0.1 from this was working fine and things marked spam were not being delivered.

Any ideas what we need to change to fix this? My real fear is virus infected mail getting through.

Thank you,

For more information:

I changed the following line in /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user:
$final_spam_destiny = D_PASS;
$final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;

then restarted amavis and my server is now blocking spam again, such as:

Mar 29 17:55:53 blacksun amavis[2593]: (02593-01) Blocked SPAM, [] [] <jeremiah@XXXXX.org> -> <jeremiah@XXXXX.org>, Message-ID: <20090329225551.3E2CCA344@blacksun.XXXXXXXXX.com >, mail_id: NDVWtU6Y74vx, Hits: 31.039, size: 2304, 999 ms

So it appears that the policy setting in ISPConfig are not correctly controlling the flow of spam.

Thank you,

is there any thread where these policies are explained? I just started experimenting with ispcfg3 and am quite confused about these "virus lover" "spam lover" etc. expressions as I don't know what they mean and what happens in the background based on them...
