Hi janina,

Do you mean it captures 10 to 12 spam messages a day, or that those are the
ones it misses?

Take care,

spamassassin is a great anti-spam bot. Only real downside, is that you do
have to receive the spam locally before spamassassin can dispose of it, but
it does work well. I see only about 10-12 spams a day, and I get several
hundred emails a day.

My spamassassin is configured to throw spam into its own mail folder,
premarked for deletion. Ocassionally, I go in there and look to see if some
message was put there erroneously. I haven't found any errors in the past
months, and I'm always amazed at how many messages are there, when I do
look. And, when I leave the folder, they're all gone, because they've
already been marked for deletion, and my ua is set to delete on folder exit.

If Linux can't solve your computing problem, you need a different problem.
