Last week I set up a brand new mail server with a combination of pf/
spamassassin/maildrop for spam filtering... Everything seems to work
great. All real mail seems to be getting through. I monitored the
spamd and maildrop logs during the first few days to make sure my
very conservative spam settings (spamd marks email that scored higher
than 5 as spam, and maildrop drops spam that scores higher than 12)
to make sure that real mail isn't getting dropped.
At the beginning of the week, I was getting a few spam a day in my
spam folder. What has me spooked is that this whole weekend I got
exactly one spam in my spam folder (a false positive, in fact). This
is down from around 500 that I normally get per day (which is why I
was keen to get an up-to-date mailserver!)
I know this is an odd thing to worry about, but is this normal? Since
the spam doesn't even seem to be reaching spamd, I'm guessing that
the real hero is pf, which must be blocking 99.99% of spam at the
Is this normal?
