Fedora Core 1 Test Update: spamassassin-2.63-0.1
Posted on: 02/11/2004 08:05 AM

Fedora Test Update Notification

Name : spamassassin
Version : 2.63
Release : 0.1
Summary : Spam filter for email which can be invoked from mail delivery agents.
Description :
SpamAssassin provides you with a way to reduce if not completely eliminate Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM) from your incoming email. It can be invoked by a MDA such as sendmail or postfix, or can be called from a procmail script, .forward file, etc. It uses a genetic-algorithm evolved scoring system to identify messages which look spammy, then adds headers to the message so they can be filtered by the user's mail reading software. This distribution includes the spamd/spamc components which create a server that considerably speeds processing of mail.

To enable spamassassin, if you are receiving mail locally, simply add this line to your ~/.procmailrc:

To filter spam for all users, add that line to /etc/procmailrc (creating if necessary).


Update Information:

This update from spamassassin-2.60 to 2.63 in FC1 should fix many bugs and improve spam detection capability. See the release notes at the upstream spamassassin.org for more information.

This release also enables spamc/spamd optional OpenSSL support.


Please discuss this test update on fedora-test-list.
Report definite findings of success or failure to this
Test Update Tracking report after you have sufficiently
tested spamassassin's range of features in production.

If no regressions are confirmed by February 20th, 2004 then this update should become final. This date may be moved sooner if the feedback is overwhelmingly postive from many high traffic mail admins.
