    I am using cpanel 11 and being told that I can't rewrite the subject of emails that are spam. Spam assassin IS adding info in the header like:

    X-Spam-Subject: [SPAM] test message
    X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=1002.4
    X-Spam-Score: 10024
    X-Spam-Bar: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    but I don't know how to write a mail rule in outlook express to read the header items and act on them. (the subject above has [spam] added, but the regular / displayed subject does NOT include the [spam] so it doesn't get put in the spam folder.

    thanks!

    SpamAssassin Can't Add Score in Subject Rewrites Anymore?

    Hello,

    I've got an account with a hosting company, and I used to be able to customize the SpamAssassin Subject line rewrite to include the score (_HITS_) via cPanel. This company just upgraded to cPanel 11.23.6-RELEASE 27698 and they are now claiming that the ability to add the Score to Subject line rewrites is now gone. Is this true?


    Thanks,

    Is There a Non-Global Way to Set Rewrites with Score?

    Thanks for the links, but is there a non-global way to accomplish the same thing that does not change the Subject line rewrite for all users? Basically, some way to accomplish the same thing that the old "rewrite_header subject **SPAM _HITS_**" instruction in the user_prefs file in the /.spamassassin folder used to do?


    Thanks,

    You can enable the "old system" in the exim configuration editor. However it will result in a MAJOR performance decrease.

    Thanks - No Way to Avoid Performance Loss?


    Nick,

    Thanks for the information. I'll make the suggestion and see what happens.

    I don't suppose there's a way to keep the former functionality WITHOUT the big performance hit?
