Using maildrop with Courier MTA


Decided to ditch sendmail on my Slackware box and go with Courier since I was already using maildrop and have heard good things about Courier.

Long story short, I installed it and everything works superbly. Couldn't be happier with the performance of the daemon and it's layout.

However, I have just one problem: maildrop does not seem to be reading it's configuration file (/etc/maildroprc). I set etc/courierd to use maildrop as the DEFAULTDELIVERY variable. Mail gets dropped into the user's ~/Maildir folder and it seems to work. Yet when I put something into /etc/maildroprc I get no difference.

I currently have this in my maildroprc:
Code:
if ( $SIZE < 26144 ) {
    exception {
       xfilter "/usr/bin/spamassassin"
    }
}

if (/^X-Spam-Flag: *YES/) {
    exception {
        to "$HOME/Maildir/.Spam/"
    }
} else {
    exception {
        to "$HOME/Maildir/"
    }
}
I want maildrop to filter the mail through spamassassin and then if it's spam, drop it into the .Spam directory of the user's Maildir.

If anyone can offer any help, I'd be more than grateful.

Thanks.

Re-read the documentation for maildrop on Courier's site, it says maildrop reads /etc/courier/maildroprc. I put it in there, gave it the right permissions, restarted Courier and sent myself a test message.

Yet when I check the headers in my client, I don't see the "X-Spam-Flag" header (which would come up if spamassassin would filter it). So it still doesn't work

Some idea

Hi,

I don't know if this applies to you, but if you compile courier yourself it gets installed into /usr/lib/courier.
In that case your configuration file for maildrop is /usr/lib/courier/etc/maildroprc

This works fine for me, as I had the same problem until about 5 minutes ago

Greetings
Marcus
