This overlaps with qmailadmin, so I'm cc'ing that list as well.

Here's the page on Freshmeat: <>

Be sure to take a look at <>. SpamAssassin can read user prefs from a MySQL table. Here's another PHP interface for users to update there prefs as well <>.

If you configure SpamAssassin to use a MySQL table, and update users qmail files to call spamc with the "-u [EMAIL PROTECTED]", you could possibly get some tight integration between SA, vpopmail and qmailadmin.

I'm not sure how you'd set up spamc to store the message in the user's directory though, if you were to add it to the .qmail file. Perhaps someone could write a modified spamc, or a wrapper for it, that would make sure the output of spamc was placed in the Maildir and then return the proper exit code for qmail-local. I'm currently using qmail-spamc as a replacement for qmail-queue to scan all incoming messages before they're delivered, but it can't handle per-user prefs.

See <> for info on qmail-spamc. If you're using qmail-scanner just for the SpamAssassin scanning, then you should look into switching to qmail-spamc instead.
