Fedora Update Notification

Name : spamassassin
Version : 2.63
Release : 0.2
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).
