Anyway I think it is a bug in procmail. I saw someone complain in
usenet too, but I couldn't find a resolution. Also he claims the
configuration works on one machine but not on the other. So there
has to be some problem with procmail. I changed spamassassin to
'spamc' and it works fine.
I very highly doubt it's a bug in procmail.
To know more, I think it would be good to see the headers of the
message you sent through that didn't do what you expected as
per that log extract you sent. Also, what version of SA and
what is the -a flag?
Ok so I think I will just ask one question and go away. I need
to sort the spam mails into different mailboxes according to
Well, my goal is not to send you away, and that would be too bad on
account of formatting discussions. How hard is it to type on your
keyboard and pound on the Enter key every once in a while? We have
some great, and helpful, and experienced procmail users on this
If 4 <= spam-score < 5 mail/mboxes/spam4
If 5 <= spam-score < 6 mail/mboxes/spam5
And so on. That way I can schedule checking these mailboxes
accordingly. The larger the value, the less frequently you
check it - say once a month, and remove everything. I think
something like this is needed,
Someone just posted to test for asterisks. Aside from that,
there have been extensive SA recipes discussed here in the past,
findable through the archive, which link I gave earlier. I myself
contributed at least one such recipe set with a threshold number,
etc., in the past. I just don't want to reinvent the wheel every
time a new member shows up -- that's what the archives are best
since the spamassassin is not
very perfect, and the frigging spammers are now using random
statements in their mails to confuse the spam blockers.
Finally the ideal solution for spam is not through software,
but through hardware. As in, get a gun a shoot those f*cking
Yeah. Well, I've been coding something called Spam Snaggers for
three months straight, and it's just about ready for a broad beta.
I will open it up to local beta testers on my system this week.
I'm pretty damn happy with how it's behaving for me right now.
I'll announce more about it as it develops.
