    Hi, I have been following the above mentioned howto (link) and - although I did not need a few things - have the the setup running now.
    The only problem is that I cannot get MailScanner to deliver spam-Emails to local accounts. They are simply not passed on. I can - however - have them quarantined.
    I want to deliver the emails to local accounts, as I want to filter them out by using courier-maildrop (I do not want to delete message, but store them in the user specific spam-folder) and have users access the emails via Courier-Imap.

    Any ides how I can get this running? What information would you nees to help me.

    Dear Sir

    I have setup my server
    Mailscanner and spamassasin works, since spam messenges get the
    [spam?] header.

    But I am unable to get the program to put mail messenges with the [spam?] in my junk folder, they all end up in my inbox.

    I have followed your tourturial, and I cannon get the program to do what it's told :)

    I have even tryed to use, maildroprc.

    [email protected]:/etc# cat /etc/maildroprc
    # Global maildrop filter file

    # Uncomment this line to make maildrop default to ~/Maildir for
    # delivery- this is where courier-imap (amongst others) will look.
    if (/^X-Spam-Flag: *YES/)
    exception {
    to "$HOME/$DEFAULT/.Junk/"
    exception {
    to "$HOME/$DEFAULT"
    }[email protected]:/etc#

    Any suggestions would be helpfull

    Here's what I have in my /etc/maildroprc , it might be useful for you. watch the logfile for errors. fyi, it doesn't check if a Junk folder exists, because i have another script that creates the Junk folder each time a new mailbox is created. and spamassassin uses the "s" letter to designate the spam score.

    logfile "/var/log/maildroprc.log"
    log "Maildir home: $HOME"
    log "Username: $LOGNAME"
    log "Mailbox: $DEFAULT"
    log "Junk folder: $JUNK"
    # if more than 5 s letters dump it in the junk folder
    if (/.*SpamScore: sssss*/)
    log "**JUNK**"
    to "$JUNK"
    to "$DEFAULT"

    just a quick question...
    I'm using this setup as a spamfilter before my Exchange Server.
    How do I set MailScanner/Spamassassin to forward quarantined spam to a specific Exchange user, i.e. [email protected].
    I've looked through the config files for MailScanner and Spamassassin, but I don't see anything that looks like it would handle this.

    hi again!:D :D

    i follow this tutorial

    Everything work perfect but when the email client program(outlook or Thunderbird) try to log on in the mail server it couldn't.I create 2-3 account and i tried all the couriers (imam,pop3,pop3s) but the same problem appears.

    As i far i can understand seems that the problem coming from Saslauthd.
    In the configuration files when i see mail_admin_password i reaplesed it with
    the passwd for mail_admin user of mysql,i think this is correct:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    any ideas??

    Thanks in advance

    finally it works!!!!! :) :)

    Its a little be tricky if you have to do with dynamic dns like
    Another think is that i finally used pop3s for my courier but the Thunderbird has the same problem ,it cannot log in:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
    With outlook 2003 everything works perfect!!!!
