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.

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
I have read the documentation, but I am still none the wiser as to the
CORRECT/PROPER method of integrating DSPAM with vpopmail + maildrop.
1. Does DSPAM identify spam at all upon first time installation?
2. Does DSPAM need aliases to classify spam?
