Spamassassin Installation on Centos 5.3


I have installed spamassassin on Centos 5.3 but currently it does not appear to be doing anything and all of my attempts to try and find out a definitive configuration guide have been exceptionally confusing as they seem to mention a host of other programs.

The server is running multiple domains and mailboxes, so far, I have done nothing but install the prgram and start the daemon.

Can anyone offer advice on what steps I should take to configure spamassassin or any other programs/additions I should be installing and configuring.

It seems to vary so much from distro to distro and I just cannot seem to find a definitive guide for Centos 5.3.

Thanks

How is your mail server set up? You really haven't told us anything useful.

Firstly, thank you for replying.

My mailserver is running postfix and Courier IMAP. I don't know if you require anything further info than that.


Thanks

There are various ways to integrate spamassassin, but the method I prefer is content filtering in postfix, via a utility call amvisd-new. Have a look at http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/
