Subject: Too messages in Hold folder when spamassassin is activated
Hi all, I'm running MailScanner-4.65-3.1(with DCC, razor2, pyzor) on a
CentOS4.5 Linux server. I installed too the package
install-Clam-0.91.2-SA-3.2.3.tar.gz in order to activate spamassassin
with mailscanner. I ran spamassassin -D --lint and there's no problem in
my configuration files. I also see in maillog file the spamassassin
doing its work with spam:
Nov 25 04:54:51 hostname MailScanner: Message B25732B1DB.A9A63
from 188.8.131.52 (jerrimy at donin.com) to mydomain.com is spam,
SBL+XBL, spamcop.net, SpamAssassin (not cached, score=30.984, required
6, DCC_CHECK 1.37, FH_HELO_EQ_D_D_D_D 0.50, FS_REPLICA 1.18,
HELO_DYNAMIC_IPADDR2 4.39, HTML_MESSAGE 0.00, RATWARE_MS_HASH 2.78,
RATWARE_OUTLOOK_NONAME 0.00, RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET 2.19, RCVD_IN_XBL
2.90, RDNS_DYNAMIC 0.10, SARE_SPEC_REPLICA_OBFU 1.81,
SARE_SPEC_ROLEX_NOV5A 1.06, TVD_RCVD_IP 1.62, URIBL_AB_SURBL 1.61,
URIBL_BLACK 1.96, URIBL_JP_SURBL 2.86, URIBL_OB_SURBL 2.13,
Everything is fine BUT, when I run "qshape hold" I see the HOLD folder
is FULL of messages waiting to be processed, I mean thousands of mails
waiting and there is a long delay in delivering.
My link to internet is not full, I mean I see the normal traffic.
So, when I turn off spamassassin in MailScanner.conf there's almost no
messages in HOLD foder.
My questions are:
1. How can I speed the spamassassin process in my server?
2. Do I have to use all the plugins (DCC, razor2, pyzor, spamcop, and
others that comes activated by default when I install spamassassin
3. Maybe offtopic, sorry.. but does anybody knows any rules on the MTA
(postfix) in order to stop spam before it gets to
4. Does anybody knows some perfect setup (best perfomance) to install
mailscanner with spamssassin? some link? some tutorial?
I have used mailscanner for several years I really love it. Any ideas
will be accepted.
thanks in advance!
