Tren,Thanks. I already went ahead and started to train the vpopmail user. From what I can see I definitely needed an alias, which I created and began forwarding spam messages to it for classification. I've checked the logs and forwarded messages are being classified as spam, but now I have to see if new messages get classified as spam based on the training, tagged accordingly and possibly moved to the Junk folder or dropped altogether by simscan or maildrop.Cheers,Michael Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2010 11:06:31 -0700 From: t...@eotnetworks.com To: email@example.com Subject: Re: [vchkpw] DSPAM configuration & usage?

You'll have to forgive me, it's been a while since I've used dspam, and never with simscan, but I'm pretty sure the vpopmail user is the user you'd need to train. As to how best to train, I cannot answer this for you. You might want to subscribe to the dspam mailing list since your questions are dspam specific. Corpus training requires you have a large sample of both spam and ham messages. Webui is for the messages that have come in since you turned dspam live. Hope that helps a bit, Tren From: Michael Mussulis [mailto:mike_at...@hotmail.com] Sent: Thursday, August 12, 2010 04:12 AM To: vpopmail <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: FW: [vchkpw] DSPAM configuration & usage? (vpopmail + simscan + maildrop + clamav) Hi Tren, Thanks for the quick reply. No I have not done any spam training whatsoever; I only caught on to this fact recently upon re-reading the documentation. Up until now I kept thinking my configuration was wrong somehow, or lacking a certain option. Ok, so now we've established it needs training, how do I go about it? What's the best/proper method of accomplishing this, without too much user intervention?I suppose one confusing issue is the fact that dspam is called with --user vpopmail, so if I am not wrong, training info exists only for vpopmail user. Does that mean the WebUI will only know about this user or none of the other [virtual] users? Thanks,Michael.

(vpopmail + simscan + maildrop + clamav) Have you done any dspam training? Dspam on its own knows nothing of spam. What makes it so powerful is how it learns based on what you teach it. Either via corpus training or training via the web interface. The dspam documentation goes over that in quite a bit of detail. It looks like otherwise your installation is correct and your issue looks to be training related. HTH, Tren !DSPAM:4c65122d32711196165608!
