Question Teaching MailScanner / Spamassassin

Hi all,

This past weekend I setup a mailscanner antispam gateway according to one of the tutorials here on howtoforge. Great tutorial! It is working great so far.

I have it setup on our web server using vmware server, as a virtual machine. And using one of our public IP addresses. This is working great too.

We are using a bunch of rules for spamassassin using the SARE ruleset.

My question is, how would one setup an email account, which spamassassin / mailscanner can learn from?

On our old system using 4PSA SpamGuardian, one could setup a 'junk_learn' folder via IMAP, and daily the system would check for messages in this folder and learn from what you put in it.

So how could one replicate that with spamassassin / mailscanner?

I sent a message througout our organization to send all spam email to a specific address, but now I would like the system to auto learn from this one address.

If anybody has some light to shed on this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Usually spam assassin will learn messages automatically after it has been setup, to learn messages manually use the sa-learn command.
