    Default Anti-Spam Protection

    Am i misreading the "Anti-Spam Protection" help it seems to suggest after a
    zimbra install "Anti-Spam Protection" is enabled by default, yet each time i
    install zimbra i have to go to the admin consloe and tick the
    "Enable spam checking and antivirus" checkbox


    "Anti-Spam Protection

    Mass unsolicited emails are referred to as spam or junk email. The Zimbra Collaboration Suite installs the SpamAssassin anti-spam software as the mail filter to identify spam mail. When you installed the Zimbra Collaboration Suite, the anti-spam software is automatically enabled.

    You can enable or disable this protection and set rules for handling spam from the Global Settings>Anti-Spam tab. How these rules are configured determine how aggressively spam is filtered. The following options can be changed:

    *

    Kill percent at 75%. Mail that is scored at 75% is considered spam and is not delivered.
    *

    Tag percent at 33%. Mail that is scored at 33% is considered spam and is delivered to the Junk folder.
    *

    Subject prefix field is blank. The prefix entered in this field is added to the subject line for messages tagged as spam.

    When ZCS was installed, an automated spam training filter was enabled. Two mail accounts were created.

    *

    The Spam Training User address receives mail notification about mail that was not marked as junk, but should have been.
    *

    The Non-Spam (HAM) Training User address receives mail notification about mail that was marked as junk but should not have been.

    When a message is tagged as spam, the message is delivered to the recipientís Junk folder. Users can view the number of unread messages and can open the Junk folder to review the messages marked as spam. "

    It is enabled by default, are you saying that after an upgrade it gets disabled and you have to enable it? Is it really disabled, if you don't check the box in the admin ui do you get spam in your inbox? If so then file it in bugzilla.

    It's not.

    I've setup some Zimbra server a dozain times (CentOS and RHEL) and each time, the AV/AS checkbox is not checked right after the installation.

    Of course, when you check it (and restart the server), it works.

    But, and I just tried on two different 4.0.3 + CentOS setup, if you uncheck it (and restart), it is still working (amavisd, SA, DSPAM, etc)...

    Answering to myself : to "really" disable the AV/AS service, you need to stop them in the "Services" tab of the server page.

    The AntiSPAM doesn't seem to work until you enable it in the admin console
    by ticking the checkbox & restarting the server
