I cannot answer your questions regarding DSPAM.

However, given your performance issues with SA, I'd like to point you toward spamdyke (http://spamdyke.org). Spamdyke typically blocks 80%+ of spam before the message is even transmitted, which lightens the load on SA considerably since there is much less mail to scan. It's really pretty amazing. I highly recommend it.

Hi All,

First of, apologies if this is a silly question, but I am VERY VERY confused with regards to DSPAM configuration/usage. I am mostly used to SpamAssassin, and have configured it many times before, with the result of it working more or less straight out of the box. However, SA is no longer a viable option due to its poor performance so I switched to DSPAM.

I have compiled, installed and configured DSPAM on my server, and can say it is executed - but spam is still coming in and it looks like DSPAM is not blocking any spam at all. I am absolutely convinced I have missed something in the configuration, somewhere, most likely (in my humble opinion) due to its very poor documentation. I have not found an adequate guide, listi ng clearly all the steps required to get it to work, i.e. to classify and block spam.

Can anyone help please? I have included a log excerpt showing simscan/dspam functionality. I have read the documentation, but I am still none the wiser as to the CORRECT/PROPER method of integrating DSPAM with vpopmail + maildrop.

Additional questions:
1. Does DSPAM identify spam at all upon first time installation?
2. Does DSPAM need aliases to classify spam?

Please help.
