Spamassassin > vFilters?

I thought I'd tap into the board here and see if anyone had any idea how to apply user's filters after spamassassin's gone through the e-mails. From what I can tell after staring at the exim.conf file for about 2 hours, once spamassassin is given the mail, it plops it in the user's inbox once it's done processing it without looking for any further instructions.

This is the first time I've looked at the exim & spamassassin files before and I've gone through google, exim's mailing list archives, exim's documentation, and exim's example config files, as well as the spamassassin site. Still can't manage to get the lightbulb floating above my head functioning on this problem though.

Any help or pointers would be much appretiated.

I need the same information. With sendmail, I was able to setup a procmail.rc that would move the spam to another email address, but with cpanel and exim, the cpanel filters do not catch the email after spamassassin, but before.

Any luck on this??

Yeah, I've given up on this - basically I wanted to use an exim filter to delete the Emails marked *** SPAM *** by spamassassin.

But SA is the last stage before delivery to INBOX, so there's nothing much we can do....

Fix

I setup an old system that scans certian pop accounts and deletes all the email that have a subject that contains **SPAM**. I run this every 30 minutes. Pain in the butt, but it does work.

I've gotten this to work by this method:
Set up secondary POP account, and have only wanted addresses forwarded there. The default 'catchall' account gets forwarded to :blackhole:. Seems the extra step of forwarding to the secondary POP account allows it to get filtered. For the filter itself, allow SA to alter header, and filter on the change.

Maybe not what you wanted, but this works for me. I'd rather not have mail not specifically addressed to me delivered anyway. Cuts down on the dictionary spammers.
