Default Glitch with my SpamSnake!!!

Hi there,

Having faithfully followed Rocky's guide to creating the perfect spamsnake on Ubuntu, I have got the whole thing up and running. A surprise in itself...!!!

The only issue I am having is that in his guide, Rocky sets the Spam Actions in MailScanner.conf to deliver with

Code:
Spam Actions = deliver
I dont fancy this, I'd rather it quarantined it - so I set it as follows:

Code:
Spam Actions = store-spam
Turns out that it doesnt seem to listen to this setting at all - since the sstem went live, all spam (and high-spam) have been deleted (or I assume they have, since no records exist of them and they haven't delivered anywhere!) except one - which was delivered with the ***SPAM*** message in the subject.

Anyone have any ideas why MailScanner would ignore the store-spam setting? I've tried a couple of the others, and even set it back to deliver as suggested in the guide, it doesn't seem to make any difference what I put in that field!!!

Many thanks in advance!!

Ah - actually looking at ti now I have had a message go into the quarantine - it is flagged as "Ban Content". Perhaps I have misunderstood the meaning of this setting?

Is there a way to make the Spam messages (sa score of 6+) go to the same quarantine file as the Bad Content messages, and just delete the High Spam messages (sa Score 10+)??

Many thanks!!!

Hmm, ok it seems to work perfectly now - maybe it just needed a weekend to think about it

Sorry for the pointless post

Hey,

It's 'store' not store-spam. You can set it up like this:
Spam Actions: deliver store (Will deliver and store)
High Scoring Spam Actions: store delete (Will store and delete)
Non Spam Actions: deliver store (Will deliver and store)
