Hi,

I have question about how exactly quarantine suppose to work. I bought IredMail Pro with MySQL backend and installed it on my server, successfully migrated my old qmail+vpopmail server onto new system. So far so good smile
I configured spamassasin according to Wiki here and its working. So now  when spam mail is detected his subject is rewriten with special tag for spam. What i dont understand is why this mails are delivered to users mailboxes anyway ?. I did the simple test to send a spam email from another machine to my account, mail was marked properly as spam and i can see it in quarantine list via admin panel. But this mail is also delivered to my mailbox. This is very confusing to me. Why this mail is in my mailbox too ? I cant see the logic here smile Also i read the wishlist here for next version and i saw that its planned feature for users to release quarantined messages without admin help. I think this is VERY important feature to have because even on my small mail server (around 500 boxes) i have approximately 2000 quarantine messages for 24 hours and i cannot spend my whole work day to look them one by one to decide which one is spam and which one is clean and need to be released manually.
  I think it will be good to have some info in Document section on the site how different parts of this package is normaly work and what they do. Just simple explanations which demon do what and what is his normal behavior, but this is just an idea smile

SPAM messages are not quarantined into SQL database by default, because users cannot manage them without iRedAdmin-Pro. So you have to enable it manually by following this tutorial:
http://www.iredmail.org/wiki/index.php? … ining.SPAM

also, above link is mentioned here:

Thanks for that link. I read it before installation and my options are exactly as they are show on the wiki. But still my test SPAM emails sended from outside locations are still delivered to my users mailboxes and i can see them in quarantine list via admin.
So my question is still stand, is this normal behavior of the quarantine module ?  (to deliver them to user mailboxes and to show them in quarantine list)
Thanks in advance.

Make sure you have only ONE '$final_spam_destiny' setting in Amavisd config files:

$final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;
