    Are there ways to limit the growth of the AWL /usr/.spamassassin/auto-whitelist file in SA?

    Is there a preset maximum size or will it grow to fill all available disk space? (As it did on one of my accounts!)

    I have very limited control over SpamAssassin and spamd. I must submit such requests to my host. I can do some controls in the /usr/.spamassassin/user_prefs SA configuration file.

    Thanks,

    Thank you. Those are all I had previously found too. I was hoping I had missed something and that there was a way to limit the growth of the AWL database. It would be useful. AWL shouldn't be allowed to grow and take over a user's storage thus potentially disabling their web site or costing them extra storage fees. Perhaps this will be included in the auto-expire.

    Can someone tell me what command to run and what directory the script needs to be run from to get it to work? This is what I got when I used it:

    "use" not allowed in expression at trim_whitelist.pl line 7, at end of line
    syntax error at trim_whitelist.pl line 7, near "use strict"
    BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at trim_whitelist.pl line 8.
