Topic: Marking missed spam in iRedAdmin

==== Required information ====
- iRedMail version (check /etc/iredmail-release): 0.9.6
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: centos 7.3
- Store mail accounts in which backend (LDAP/MySQL/PGSQL): Mariadb
- Web server (Apache or Nginx):Nginx
- Manage mail accounts with iRedAdmin-Pro? Soon

Hi,

I am trying to understand spam gets managed in iRedAdmin Pro. I see from the Demo console that it is easy enough to release good mail that gets caught in the spam trap but I am wondering how do we go back and classify as spam anything that leaks through spamassassin. In addition, is it necessary for the users to do something to teach the baysian filters the difference between spam and ham or is it an automatic thing? It would seem to me there must be some way to train it or it will in time get it very wrong?

I guess a better way to ask this question is what needs to go into the care and feeding of the spam filters to keep them running properly when using self service mode of iRedAdmin-pro?

Regards,

Tom

Re: Marking missed spam in iRedAdmin

iRedAdmin-Pro doesn't support submitting caught spam to a learning system (yet).

To achieve this, we need a spam learning system like SpamAssassin + bayes in iRedMail first. But asking users to train spam might be not a good idea, a better way might be saving a copy while user moving email to Junk folder, then call sa-learn to learn it as spam. and learn it as ham/clean when moving email from Junk to INBOX or other folders. This is what Dovecot plugin 'antispam' does.

But there's a new Dovecot plugin aiming to replace 'antispam' plugin:

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Thanks for the info. I was not aware of this. After reading the links above, I actually think using Sieve and just having the users move mail between junk and their inbox is the way to go.

Users are more likely to do that because it is easy and makes sense.

Because end user doesn't need to be trained to know how to train it. smile
