    amavisd-new brings a cron job (/etc/cron.d/amavisd-new), which runs /usr/sbin/amavisd-new-cronjob every 3 hours as user 'amavis'. Changing the sa-sync and sa-clean actions to invoke sa-learn with --spam and --ham options (e.g., "--spam /var/vmail/*/*/Maildir/.Junk/*/*", "--ham /var/vmail/*/*/Maildir/cur/*") is simple. However, /var/vmail is vmail:vmail 700.

    What is the best way to integrate:
    1. run amavisd-new-cronjob as vmail instead of amavis?
    2. run amavisd-new-cronjob as root instead of amavis?
    3. figure out how the make /var/vmail vmail:amavis 750 for all adds/changes done via ISPConfig?

    There is little surprise that most issues have already been discussed, as most have found out after tenacious searching. I am not sure the issue is fully resolved by a thread on this very forum [1]; however, I want to add the cross linking, since all of the forum is indexed by google. I starting to wonder if amavis is the best approach. Christian Roessler's article [2] seems like an approach more like gMail. Of course, none of our ISPConfig installations rivals gMail. Still, a population of users marking as Junk, and having SA learn in real time these classifications, seems better than the /usr/sbin/amavisd-new-cronjob approach.
