Spammers Beware

Filed under: Geek News and Stuff — site admin @ 7:03 am

I was getting spam to a couple of email addresses that I set up for one time use on this domain. I was really trying to figure out how to add them to a filter on SpamAssassin without completely rejecting the mail (I want to use them to train SpamAssassin’s) so blacklisting them wasn’t going to work. I settled on setting the addresses in the virtual user table (/etc/mail/virtusertable). Now the spam comes in, gets processed and runs through SpamAssassin’s learn module. So keep those cards and letters rolling!
