    crypted: the postfix tag for smtpd that ends with ,permit is the full line I have in my config.

    I think it would be good to have some sort of place for users to post their antispam setups. I know it would help me, I too have a ton of spam that hits my servers (4000+ daily) and plenty get through. The URIBL is something new to me so that was helpful. Also, maybe people posting their header/content filters would also be helpful. I'm getting pressure from the bosses to get spam under control like gmail or my opinion we have all the tools built in with ispc3 so there is no reason why it cannot be done (maybe go a step further like spamsnake??).

    I can't really help any further than what I've provided other than make sure you're running as-update as Till suggest but also telling it to learn from junk mail folders.

    Turbanator: Do you have a lot of email disregarded that wasn't spam at all? Those flags don't alter the XSPAM scores do they? It appears to be a direct deletion at upon incoming to the system...

    I agree it would be useful to work together to post information to come up with a better spam solution comprised of all the thirdparty lists and what not...

    By putting your tag 1 level to -1000 as you have, every email gets tagged.

    The smptd restrictions, I believe, block the emails from coming into the system at all.

    I'm at the point of reading more about the uribl (or others for use within spamassasin) and setting up content filters which is probably the best solution since we get a lot of "spam" that comes through with low tags, but are clearly unwanted emails.

    Post your findings here, please....once you've come up with more SA solutions.

    Still receiving spam. I don't see anything about HELO in the for postfix. Anyone else setup/modify the configuration to add that?

    Some say that most spam emails do not say HELLO to the postfix server when sending it to you. Whereas all normal email will have a HELLO initiation.


    Here is my MAIN.CF showing my restrictions and all. It's filtering out about 20+ extra a day that would have made it to INBOX. No telling how many its filtering that would have been caught by SA and sent to Junk.
