Default Rejecting SPAM with amavisd.conf

Hello All,

Set up Falcos Virtual Users / Postfix / Fedora 10 Setup and I am having an issue with the delivery of SPAM. We want to reject SPAM coming in. We have set the amavisd.conf with:

$final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;

But we are still getting the SPAM coming into the email accounts. Is this where it's supposed to take place.

Again we want the email identified as SPAM to never make it to the users account.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Toolz

Did you restart amavisd?
What's in the mail log when a spam message comes in?

Not sure what is wrong. Did you disable SELinux?

Hello Falco,

Just did a double check to make sure and yes it's disabled. Just a not SPAMASSISN is not running at startup. If I recall correctly, it shouldn't be, right?
