Spamassassin (server) and Outlook (Client) question


Hello,

Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. I was wondering if any of you know of a way for an outlook client to be able to report spam and either have it automatically add the information into spamassassin or have it give me a report? I have looked around here and google, and don't seem to have found any luck. Does anyone know of such a program? Or does it even exist? Currently, users are forwarding me the messages, and I have to go through each message and ban based upon email address, domain name, or any other variable normal to a spamassassin install. Thanks in advance!

Travis

There are Spamassassin(-alike) packages for wintendo they can use with MICROS~1, IIRC. Else you could have it sent to a separate email address (=mailbox) and have procmail intercept it or (manually) run a report on it. For idea's on that (if you know procmail and how to script it) look here. If you dont want to add a recipe to procmail it also should be easy to turn it into a hourly cronjob.

Thanks! I'll take a look into it. I don't mind scripting with procmail, or getting my hands dirty.
