Is this possible with SpamAssassin ?

    I'm new to SpamAssassin and having been using Mailscanner in past.

    With Mailscanner, I could set a threshold at which emails were Flagged as spam (in the subject line) plus also set a higher threshold level at which emails were deleted automatically.

    As far as I can see with SpamAssassin, its only possible to set a level at which emails are flagged (SPAM) but its not possible to automatically delete higher level emails, without deleting ALL marked emails.

    Therefore it is possible to set SpamAssassin to do this?

    One a separate question .. does anyone have any comments about how SpamAssassin compares with Mailscanner? Mailscanner is not installed on my new server.

    Thx.

    First, how are you using SpamAssassin? Are you currently using the standard cPanel 11 setup?

    Further on this ... is it possible to set up a CPanel email filter which will filter *** SPAM *** emails at or above a certain threhsold leveleg using

    X-Spam-Status or X-Spam-Score or X-Spam-Bar

    This would mean that it would let though (and Flag) any emails that, say, reached a level of 5 but (using a filter) it would delete any emails with a level of either;

    X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=6

    or

    X-Spam-Score: 6
    or

    X-Spam-Bar: ++++++


    Thanks.

    OK - just found out that Cpanel 11 adds these options to "Add Filter" once SpamAssassin is enabled.

    Now sorted.

    :)
