    Hi,
    I was wondering if its possible to have spamassassin check all outgoing mail and then if the outgoing mail meets the criteria it is forwarded to an abuse address or a queue or something so that I can monitor which of my users are spammers.

    Any help would be great!

    thanks!

    Thanks for your reply :)

    Yes I have seen mailscanner... seems like the way to go. How is it configured if you don't use a cpanel frontend? Do you know anywhere where I can read about its features? I can't seem to find a list of what it can do...

    Thanks

    Thanks :)

    I have setup mailscanner now and it seems to be working as it should.
    One problem I am encountering is that when I setup the action rules to forward mail to an address and also delete I seem to receive duplicate e-mails. Its very strange! Anyone encountered this before?

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    What does the rule look like that you've configured (you can change the email addresses for privacy), and in which ruleset?

    in spam.action.rules I added:

    To: *@domain.com forward spam@domain2.com delete


    The strange thing is that if I send a mail to user@domain.com I receive one copy to user@domain.com and one to spam@domain2.com.
    If I set the forward address to user@domain.com I only receive one e-mail. I now that the e-mail is deleted as when I send a mail outgoing with the same setup it never reaches its destination, but I recieve two copies? very strange! Maybe its something with cpanel?

    Thanks for your help!

    I think I found the error, there was an incorrect setup in cpanel.

    Thanks for your help!
