I run a mail server

I have an account on a server

I have an account on a server, spamassassin is already running but I don't like how it decides what is spam and what is ham

  • 1. examine X-Spam headers in several emails to see how spamassassin is evaluating them
    • on a shared server with a web interface like cPanel:
      • use the spamassassin panels to view the current configuration.
      • RECORD ALL settings on the various panels.
    • with shell access:
      • ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs contains the user customization configuration.
      • cp ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs_original
  • 2. Make a small adjustment to the score on one of the rules.
  • 3. Go back to step 1

Can I just buy something?

Can I use SpamAssassin on other systems
