Cool Spam Filtering

How effective is this spam filtering, do you need to update this at any point. Is it a auto-update or manual ect....

Thanks

It is as effective as spamassin is. You can install e.g. pyzor and DCC on your server to enhance the filtering. Spamassin is updated together with ISPConfig.

The antivirus engine is updated together with ISPConfig, the antivirus databases are updated automatically via freshclam.

So ISPConfig and the antivirus gets updated together, do you mean when you bring out a new release or does ISPConfig and antivirus get updated in the background, every week--month ect...

It is updated when we release a new ISPConfig version. ClamAV and Spamassin do not release new version very often.

The antivirus definitions are updated up to 10 times a day automatically.
