[SM-USERS] Plugin to filter spam

Alejandro Facultad
Hi, I have squirrelmail and my mail server tags the spam mail in the mail
subject with the string [**SPAM**].
I need a plugin for squirrelmail in order to filter the spam messages and
put them directly into a special folder, without the user action.

I saw several plugins in the sm homepage...but which fits my needs ???? Do
you know about it ???

Thanks and greetings,

Alejandro

What kind of mail system layout are you using?

System users, cyrus, vpopmail, vmailmgr, qmail-ldap, custom mail delivery
system?

ServerSideFilters plugin (http://sourceforge.net/projects/serverfilters/)
or filters plugin included with SquirrelMail. You might have to
reconfigure selinux in order to use ServerSideFilters.

In reply to this post by Alejandro Facultad
Why can't you use procmail and just send the mail marked with **SPAM**
to a different folder like "SPAM"? This is the typical setup used by
SpamAssassin. That way you don't need to modify SM at all.
In your .procmailrc you would put a line something like this:
:0:
* ^Subject: .*\*\*SPAM\*\*
/home/yourusername/Spam

For time being, I use procmail recipe to mark them as **SPAM** and move
them automatically to spam folder.

I have read one plugin which does filter spam using procmail (server-side
filter). I never use it.

Re: [SM-USERS] Plugin to filter spam

Alejandro Facultad
Hi Zamri,

I've read your response about a plugin filter for spam mails, using
Squirrelmail as the user interface.

You recomended to me using PROCMAIL, and I see many people use it...but can
you tell me if just procmail is necessary to put the spam mails into a given
folder ??? Or do I have to install more packages ??

I have sendmail + uw-imapd + clamav + spamassassin + spamass-milter

Really thanks !!!!!!!

Alejandro

I think you might want to go do some of your own research.  Briefly,
filtering can happen in two places, at two distinct times:  at the time
of delivery by the delivery agent, or at the time you read your messages
by the mail client.

The latter is inherently slower and thus less desirable, and is also
limited in that the filtering will not take place if you read your mail
with a different client, unless it has the same kind of filtering in
place.  The only real advantage of this option is that you don't have to
know how to or be able to install any special software on your mail
server.  Just enable the "filters" plugin that comes with SquirrelMail,
and that's it (beside defining your personal filtering rules).

The former is by far the better option, but it requires you know how to
and have enough access to install some kind of filtering-capable mail
delivery agent on your mail server, the most popular of which are
procmail and courier-maildrop; Sieve is Cyrus' filtering language if you
use their IMAP server.  There are SquirrelMail front-end plugins for all
of these, but again, they only serve as an interface for editing your
filtering rules in those server-side applications.

Sounds like you could install procmail, but if this is daunting to you,
the SquirrelMail filters plugin might be the easiest solution for now.

1) do not send mail to me directly.  reply on-list, thanks

2) as has been mentioned more than once I believe, the plugin *comes
WITH* squirrelmail.  all you have to do it just enable it in the
configuration for squirrelmail.
