SARE Channels

This page has the list of channels that can be used with sa-update to obtain additional rules from the SpamAssassin Rules Emporium. SARE rules catch many different kinds of spam, including adult, spoof, stock tips, fraud, etc.

We guys at OpenProtect have created a sa-update channel for SARE which contains the recommended rules in the SARE - SpamAssassin Rules Emporium. This way, rules can be updated easily using sa-update, which ships with SA versions above 3.0. To use the rules, see SA sa-update channel for SARE


– felicity: the openprotect channel has a pre file which loads basically all of the plugins, even optional ones. you can't disable them once they're loaded, so fyi.
