Improved Spam Filtering
SpamAssassin on mathserv has been ignoring messages flagged as not-spam by the campus level spam detector since the latter was implemented. Unfortunately, this has resulted in an increase in the number of spam messages reaching inboxes. SpamAssassin (actually, procmail) is now configured to ignore (actually, remove) the campus-level tags.
While spam detection is automatic, spam filtering isn't. You'll need to put the following lines in the .procmailrc file in your home directory in order to turn filtering on:
### spam assassin SPAMTO=SPAM #SPAMTO=/dev/null INCLUDERC=/usr/local/etc/procmail/spam ### end spam assassinMore information here.
