    You may change "Scoring Interval" during which decided either to block IP or not. Actually it is not a problem for most servers, good IPs work well while just some specific situations may cause problems and require additional setup Penalty Box setup. It is also possible to set pbTestMode to 1 (e.g. Penalty Box to Test Mode) and no IPs will be rejected.

    Anyway, thank you for warning, I will additionally check either domain listed at pb_spam_lover contribute to the Penalty Box...

    P.S. While replying to you I have forgotten that with ASSP X one may put his domain(s) on Not Processed list. In this case this domain won't contribute to the Penalty Box and no emails will be denied. So, please, check this carefully and you will find that there are more possibilities to control emails flow than you have thought :)

    To your information ASSP X has ALL ASSP filters configurable via cPanel interface so customers may add their domains to Penalty Box spam lover list.

    Hi so far one major problem im seeing are all the spam messages being feed to the /spam directory but they are never being converted using /usr/local/assp/scripts/move2num.pl -r so those messages that are not converted to numbers are piling up. I looked at your cron jobs and there is nothing there that executes it. Note, the default setting in ASSP is set to report based on subject not number so assp never picks it up for processing. Please note, there is nothing in ASSP that will convert it. Its must be converted by running move2num manually after testing is over and if you know ASSP you need to turn that check mark off in the config but most people dont know its there.

    Thank you.

    Thats correct but i dont see why this is a problem. Load up ASSP and select the Penalty option and set all scores to ZERO.
    Ahh but this is one thing you dont want to enable. Bayesian filters with ASSP dont work that great. On our servers they are turned off at the ASSP config level. Then, its never used for lookups.

    You will need to test ASSP on your server to determine what you want. If you dont want something on, turn it off in the ASSP config by load it from the port you have it configured then its not used. Just dont reload the default config from the ASSPX option othewise all options get set back to default.

    Its the best spam solution out there. You just need to work with it. And dont use Bayes.

    Good luck.

    Another thing i would like to see;

    REQUEST: While its nice to disable all filter for users there would be a BIG advantage to allow the admin to require certain filters to run all the time and something users could not turn off.

    For eg, one of the best functions of ASSP is the ability to delay, greylisting. Another is URILB looks. If for example i wanted to ensure that both these items were ON for everyone by default then users could not turn them on or off and would be forced to have it enabled on their accounts.

    Likewise, the admin should have the ability to control this from WHM.

    Thank you.

    Our installation of ASSP is custom. We did it ouselves over a course of a few months on all our FreeBSD boxes. We have been running ASSP for over 6 months btw. One thing we see in our logs is this on the hours is this;

    But, we do not see this when its installed via your module on a cPanel server so my question is, how is this handled? This is a very important cleanup thats supposed to execute on the hour. I dont see any evidance of it when installed as a cPanel module.

    in WHM interface if we use "Disable filters for all domains" and then if we wish to enable all filters for all domains then how to it?

    Any idea?

    Have you check this? Its possible that there is a big fat bug in ASSP. I mean, we did a test and placed all users in the non process list. The end results is.

    Scores are still being added
    RBL checks are still being performed
    SPF and no MX/A record checks are still being checked
    Bayesian still being reported even after we turned it off in the config

    I dont think the no process list is working properly. It should be reporting, user is spam lover and pass the message on without any checking.

    just empty all /usr/local/assp/rules/*_spam_lover files and you enable filters (if they are allowed, of course!).

    Could you PM me with EXACT entry from notprocess list and the part of maillog.txt?
    It may be the bug with ASSP so it would be interested to verify.

    Hello,

    Working great so far after a few try to get port 26 working. For now, I don't know if it's blocking good emails, we will see.

    Only problem, exim is failing/restarting every ten minutes. Moreover in my service manager I have two exim, one green, one red.
    exim- failed @ Fri Mar 30 16:18:40 2007. A restart was attempted automagicly.

    Ready to support or beta test if needed.

    Best regards,
    Francois

    First of all you need to login to WHM and go to Service Manager. Then find out the "exim on another port", UNCHECK boxes and remove port 26. Click Save.

    It is the first part.

    Second part is to replace default ASSP X secondary port 2525 to port 26. Edit the file /usr/local/assp/assp.cfg.override and add single line:
    listenPort2:=26

    Now RESTART Exim and RESTART ASSP.

    You are done.

    P.S. Feature to set secondary port via ASSP X is in the process. Then steps will be automated.

    Hello,

    The checkboxes were already unchecked but resaving the settings did fix that :)

    Will try to learn how it does work now.

    Nice weekend,
    Thanks,

    Francois

    The upgrade really screws up the existing filters set on all users domains.

    Has anyone looked? We have about 5 default filters set for all sites. After the upgrade they were all enabled so once again we had to go though and empty out all the spam lover files in order to enable 5 filters across all domains.

    Also, there seems to be some logic problem. If you disable say Bayesian in the admin option the users can still see Bayesian filters but they cant enable them. What is the pupose of showing disabled filters to the users?

    Will there be a better upgrade for existing users settings? We dont want to distrub user filter settings everytime we do an upgrade.

    Is there any documentation?

    There are quite a few options in the admin section im not sure about. For eg, if we make changes to the ASSP config settings then which option in the WHM option will reset those options back to default? Is it the reload option?

    If the cpanel interface has already been installed, is there a way to hide it so people dont go around clicking on this button for no reason.

    If the exim config is set, is there a way to hide this button?

    If the default settings have already been set (TURN OFF ALL FILTERS) is there a way to prevent accidental PRESS of the button?

    There seems to be a big GAP in the Network Settings theme after the additional port option, since the last update. I would have thought that ASSP fixed this but i see it on many installations. Anyone reported it too them?
