I hate mail servers

By | 2006/05/21

I’ve spent the day fighting with my stupid peice of crap mail server (yes, the same I’ve been complaining about for weeks).  Everything is processing fine, its just one little thing that I can’t seem to get working.

I’m using postfix + amavis + spamassassin.  The process recognizes spam and sends a notice to [email protected] but it JUST WONT ‘rewrite_header Subject ***SPAM***’ like its supposed to.  It seems simple enough–I’ve done it before–I just can’t seem to figure how to do it again.  If spam gets thru I want the subject to be rewritten loudly as ***SPAM***.

If anyone has any suggestions I’d appreciate it.  I’m throwin’ my hands in the air at this point.  If I have to read the amavisd.conf file one more time I’ll claw my eyes out.

    place in your amavisd.conf

    $sa_spam_subject_tag = ‘***SPAM*** ‘; # (defaults to undef, disabled)
