What is Spam Assassin and
Spam Box [Linux]?
Spamassassin is an opensource spam filter software program.
The Spambox option is for spamassassin to delivery spam
messages to an IMAP folder. IF you enable spambox, pop based
webmail clients can't see the new IMAP folder. Best thing to
do in this situation is to enable Subject rewrites and use
that in a filter.
What does Subject rewrites
and use that in a filter do and how do i enable it [Linux]?
Subject rewrite converts the subject of the email to make spam
Subject: I love SPAM, it's better than viagra!
<---Processed by Spam Assassin--->
Subject: *****SPAM***** I love SPAM, it's better than viagra!
So you can do a Subject search for SPAM and automatically
delete it using a inbound filter/rule (different term
depending on your software)
Otherwise, you have to scan for header: X-Spam-Flag which is
set to Yes when it hits your threshhold.
What do I use for my POP3
(incoming)/SMTP (outgoing) mail server?
You should use mail.yourdomain.com for POP/SMTP Server.
Do you count email space
towards my allotted space?
Yes. Any e-mail you have stored on the server counts as
storage for your account, therefore, we recommend not storing
e-mail on the server. Once you download and read your mail,
you should ensure that your e-mail client deletes the mail
from the server.
