Which email server?
Posted 14 November 2002 - 01:48 PM
I'm running Mandrake 9.0 on the server, and will use Spamassassin and Razor to help reduce spam. I prefer having spam controls set by the user (i.e. what rating to mark as spam, whether to mark or just delete, etc.) and so far it looks like with Sendmail this can be done, and with qmail it's partially possible though most of what I've read deals with server-wide settings, and not per-user. No info read on Postfix yet, I'm sure there's some info about it though if I keep looking.

Lot of exploits out for Sendmail, that's why I'm thinking of using qmail. If I use a different pop server than the one built-in with qmail, then I could use the mbox format and do my filtering through procmail. Just not sure if that's the best way though.
What I'm thinking, is just using Maildir as the mailbox format, which is not sendmail compatible but it is a fairly recognized standard. For the server-wide spam settings, I would have it set to not delete, only mark it. Then I can work on another script perhaps that would let users decide to have the spam mail deleted or not.

So what you end up doing? We have setup SpamAssasin, and setup 2 PCs with Mandrake 9.0 (mx1, mx2)
filtering, we use sendmail, instead of postfix or qmail, even though we tried postfix.
It's then re-directed to an Exchange box.
