How to configure MailDrop/Spam assassin for ALL mailboxes
I'm posting in this forum as this has to be a newb question, because what I want to achieve sounds so effing simple!
I have a server, running Fedora Core 6 (old I know...)
It has Maildrop and Postfix installed, working and delivering mail.
I have installed Spamassassin (using Yum) and started the service.
I have spent a long time looking on Google, but every tutorial I seem to find is using Dovecot, Pigeon, VPopMail, QMail or some other piece of software which muddies the water to the point I can no longer work out what the hell to do.
All I want to achieve is to have Spamassassin check all emails which are destined for local delivery (multiple mailboxes, across multiple domains), and mark the emails with the appropriate headers.
I think perhaps I need to edit a file called '/etc/maildroprc'? I read another tutorial which was using procmail, which required the editing of '/etc/procmailrc', and I seem to recall mention of a maildroprc file somewhere else.
However, I can't seem to find this file anywhere.
If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very, very grateful. I'm going to be away for the next 4 days, but I will be back on Monday should you require any further information off me.
