    I'm asking this because I didn't find a resource on this:

    Does ISPConfig already have cronjobs or similar to keep spam assassin's rules up-to-date and to automatically learn?

    Like "sa-update" and "sa-learn"?

    Thank you!

    ispconfig uses amvisd and amavisd takes care of spam learning in spamassassin automatically, and sa-learn is automatically executed by the spamassasin cronjob of the linux os, so no need to do that in ispconfig a second time.

    Is there any valuable resource or information on this?

    amavis learns spam and ham automatically based on its score /autolearn faeture of amavis). when you want to trauin spam manually based on its imap folder locations, then you will have to setup a cronjob for it. But be careful, dont train spam twice. The sa-learn job has to be run as amvis user, If I remember correctly.

    So ISPConfig3 doesn't make amavis learn from manually marked spam.

    Thank you for the clarification!
