Body SA rule

Mr. Winkler,

Thank you very much. That seemed to work, although I think I may have tried that same rule you provided. The difference was I used a rule name with a hyphen instead of underscore. Do you know if that is a real issue? I might be wrong though on whether I used your regexp prior, I tried so many.

Thanks again

  Here's one I use...

  rawbody LOCAL_CNTNTFRM_vresp    /https?:\/\/.*?\.vresp\.com/i
  describe LOCAL_CNTNTFRM_vresp   Has "http://*" in body
  score LOCAL_CNTNTFRM_vresp      3

  In the reg exp /s and .s must be preceded by \, makes it confusing. The ? makes the s optional so http or https will work. The i after the final / means case insensitive.

  Your reg exp would be "/http:\/\/www\.xx-yyyyy\.com/" off the top of my head anyways.

    Subject: Body SA rule

    This is not a MS problem, but I have yet been able to find anything in the SA archives and hope that someone using MS has done this before. I'm not versed in Perl, so I sort of need assistance. The people of this maillist really seem to be on the ball.

    We receive a lot of spam from a particular group. Each mailing is from various sources, but all have the following line in them(actually a reply link where I have replaced the real address with x's, y's, etc):

     visit at

    I would like to use a body or rawbody (uri or full maybe?) rule to find "html://" and give it a score in SA by adding it to my spam.assassin.prefs.conf file but have not yet figured out how to write it. My Header rules work fine, but all of my attempts at this seem to be all for nothing.

    Any help would be appreciated and sorry for the non-MS stuff.
