WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm generally much happier with the spam filtering now and so dropped my custom .procmailrc.

Except there's a few kinds of spam filtering that just don't work for me, like LOTS_OF_MONEY...there are a few emails I get with more than $1000 written as a number and they get classified as junk.

I see that you can cut specific rules in ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs, but not sure if that would work on webfaction? I'd rather not go back to the procmail recipes as the new behavior is generally much better.

Hints?

thanks.

~/.spamassassin/user_prefs currently can't be used on our service, because you don't have a shell account on the mail servers, and we don't have any end-user UI to manage it.

I'll open a feature request ticket for this, but there's no way to know when, or even if, it will be implemented.

OK, I've tried everything short of going back to a hand coded .procmailrc and I really think this is a feature that is needed. Now that you are keeping up with the latest versions of SpamAssasin the real tweaks are just to the rulessets that an individual will care about. The default settings are just too aggressive.

Any chance we could get this implemented?

thanks.

Currently there is an open feature request to look at adding '.spamassassin/user_prefs' ability for customers. There is no ETA or a decision as to if we will implement it yet. Our staff is hard at work adding other features that have been already scheduled.
