Hey!

I'm using spamassassin, and I've been pretty happy with it thus far.

That said, it's started marking all my e-mail as possible spam, even though the X-Spam-Score is < 0:
Code:

X-Spam-Score: -1.4 (-)
X-Spam-Report: Spam detection software, running on the system "megatron.kickingdragon.com", has
   identified this incoming email as possible spam.  The original message
   has been attached to this so you can view it (if it isn't spam) or label
   similar future email.  If you have any questions, see
   the administrator of that system for details.

   0.0 HTML_MESSAGE           BODY: HTML included in message
   -0.0 AWL                    AWL: From: address is in the auto white-list


Some people who have received e-mail from me have started complaining: is there any reason why SpamAssassin is marking up the X-Spam-Report? I figured anything < 0 *shouldn't* be marked as possible spam, right?

for a quick fix add
whitelist_from *@yourdomain.com
to your user_prefs or local.cf


settings something like
Code:

allow_user_rules 1
bayes_path /my/path/to/spamassassin/etc/bayes
report_safe 0
bayes_file_mode 0770
use_bayes 1
bayes_auto_learn 1
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_nonspam -12.1
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_spam 12.0
rewrite_header  subject ****SPAM****
required_score  4.00
whitelist_from  *@kickingdragon.com
whitelist_from  *@megatron.kickingdragon.com
blacklist_from  blythe@01casinos.com
blacklist_from  flower@080flower.com
blacklist_from  hhppgxbck@accmfg.com
blacklist_from  guggcdse@acelerate.net
blacklist_from  girawuzswo@adslplus.ch

Hrmm, tried that, now I get:

Code:

X-Spam-Score: -101.4 (---------------------------------------------------)
X-Spam-Report: Spam detection software, running on the system "megatron.kickingdragon.com", has
   identified this incoming email as possible spam.  The original message
   has been attached to this so you can view it (if it isn't spam) or label
   similar future email.  If you have any questions, see
   the administrator of that system for details.

My local.cf looks like:

Code:

rewrite_header Subject [SpamAssassin thinks this is SPAM]
required_score 5.0
use_bayes 1
bayes_auto_learn 1
whitelist_from *@kickingdragon.com


Which is odd. I get the header saying that SpamAssassin thinks this is spam, but it doesn't end up rewriting the header...?

I'm lost. :(

Hrmm: seems it *is* rewriting the subject line, only if the spam score is above 5 - which is fine.

I'm just concerned that the X-Spam-Report says: "identified this incoming email as possible spam.". If the X-Spam-Score is less than the threshold, why does it think it's spam?

I have Thunderbird set to acknowledge SpamAssassin's headers, but it doesn't seem to be working -- my hypothesis is that it's messed up because it's seeing these headers, but I've told it that some things aren't junk and others are. It's getting all confused. :(

Any ideas? Thanks for your input so far!
