Hi, just checking on a particular...
Spam assassin does *not* work when mx entries are used does it?
explain what do you mean ?
well, if you add a mx entry to route email to an email server, will emails still filter through spamassasin, or does it only work with pop-based email on the web server
SpamAssassin works for the incoming mails on your local pop accounts and not on outgoing. Atleast this is what i know. Someone please correct if i m not.
When you talk of MX then you mean an external server and the mail needs to be send to them, why do you need spam assassin in that case neways ?
Yeah, thats right, mx is just for incoming mails
if mail is passed thru spanassassin b4 it gets sent to out to our mail server, we will not need to purchase an expensive spam filter for our e2k box. this way would just be handy.
When you define a MX for a domain and that MX is not on your server then those mails are relayed to the MX server by exim. When this happens again my same question, why do you need SpamAssassin to check the mail.
Do you think you box will generate spams or is a source of spams ?
Think again on this.
