  1. I'm certainly not doubting your wisdom Glenn, but the changes I noticed in the way server44 spamassassin works happened after the changeover to the new machine. Up until that point, server43 and server44 behaved exactly the same (spamassassin modified the message instead of just the headers). Any chance we could get a tutorial on spamassassin? The web-based interface is great, but doesn't make available all the configuration options.
  2. I have two domains hosted on TCH (TCH Rocks, BTW). One of them is on server43, the other on server44. I've noticed something interesting in the past few days. Spam delivered through server44 now has all the spamassassin checks and scores included in an X-Spam-Report header, while server43 continues to modify the actual message with the spam report. Example from server44 in the headers: Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii X-Spam-Report: * 0.5 XXX BODY: Information on getting larger xxx * 0.3 HTML_FONT_BIG BODY: HTML has a big font * 0.1 HTML_MESSAGE BODY: HTML included in message Example from server43 in the body of the message: Spam detection software, running on the system "server43.totalchoicehosting.com", has identified this incoming email as possible spam. [...] Content analysis details: (11.2 points, 4.0 required) pts rule name description ---- ---------------------- -------------------------------------------------- 2.1 WHY_PAY_MORE BODY: Why Pay More? 0.8 BIZ_TLD URI: Contains a URL in the BIZ top-level domain 1.1 RCVD_IN_SORBS_SOCKS RBL: SORBS: sender is open SOCKS proxy server [ listed in dnsbl.sorbs.net] Frankly, I like the server44 way of doing it (it makes reporting spam to their ISP MUCH easier) Any chance of getting server43 upgraded/config'ed like server44? (Certain words removed by TCH-Robert)
  3. gotcha...that's what I was doing wrong. Thanks for the quick responses folks! TCH ROCKS!
  4. Hey folks, I have a question/problem. First a little background: I have a couple of email addresses the spammers have gotten hold of big time. I've been reading and searching the forums, and I know that I can create that email box and a forwarder to point to :fail: so the email bounces (I don't necessarily want it to go to :blackhole:). I also run SpamAssassin, but, I'm having a confusing issue. It appears that SpamAssasin is run on the emails coming in BEFORE they're routed to the correct email box (in this case, to be bounced). The result is that my default email box keeps getting copies of the emails that are bounced, and I really can't tell if the spammer (assuming a legit address) is getting a bounced message or not. example headers: etc..... Anybody have any ideas how to :fail: delivery for a mailbox while using SpamAssassin, but not have copies of the bounced message show up in my default mailbox? Thanks!

    Sheez...I feel like a complete idiot now. There was a typo in my mt.cfg file.

    OK, I feel stupid. I've done all the stuff in this thread, but I'm still getting the same error: I've created the database in cpanel, created the user, added the user to the database: Help! Thanks! Jeff
