So, this SpamAssassin/SpamBouncer combination seems to be working well. All 20 spams I've received since last night have been caught. No false positives. It's doing exactly what I had hoped. The ones that SpamBouncer would let go, SpamAssassin terminates. And the ones that were squeaking by SpamAssassin are now pushed over the edge by SpamBouncer.


Here is my setup in case anyone wants to try it.

/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
header SBSPAM X-SBClass =~ /^Spam$/
describe SBSPAM SpamBouncer says this is definitely spam
score SBSPAM 4.00

header SBBLOCK X-SBClass =~ /^Blocked$/
describe SBBLOCK SpamBouncer says this is probably spam
score SBBLOCK 3.00


~/.procmailrc
MAILDIR=${HOME}/mail
[Sort any mailinglists here]

# Pass through SpamBouncer (tag only)
VERBOSE=on
SBDIR=[PUT SB DIRECTORY HERE]
FORMAIL=[PUT THE LOCATION OF YOUR FORMAIL BINARY HERE]
BASE64BLOCK=yes
FILTER=yes
HTMLBLOCK=yes
LEGITLISTS=${SBDIR}/legitlists
INCLUDERC=${SBDIR}/sb.rc

# Then pass through SpamAssassin
:0fw
* ^From:.*@
* < 256000
| /usr/bin/spamassassin -P

# Sort spams into spam folder
:0:
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
spam



I have a lot of things to do today. Maybe I'll do some of them now.

Hee, you obviously download that DJ Sakin song from a Dutch person. ;D "Lange remix" is Dutch for "Long remix", which someone probably put there, because it's the "Original mix". ;D

Heh! I never thought about that. In this case, I'm pretty sure it's this guy though.
