    I have a customer asking what percentage of all mail bound for an address is being flagged and/or deleted by SpamAssassin (we also run Vipul's Razor in combination with SA). Is there an easy way to get the number:

    - of all emails bound for an address in a given time period
    - of those emails flagged by SA

    Or is there an existing script or add-on that might be useful for this purpose?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Infopro. I've been meaning to install MailScanner for a while anyway. Looks like it's time to go for it.

    I'll second the MailWatch option. Details of all messages are stored in a database from which you can generate reports via the MailWatch interface - this is certainly a pretty decent starting point.

    You could also then write you own scripts to query the database and extract reports more specific to your needs.
