    Default Spam Training: How to properly train DSPAM?

    I can't seem to find anything on how to train DSPAM...

    I know how to train spamassassin, but how can we feed the good folders(ham) and junk folders (spam) to dspam to enhance it's scanning ability... unless I'm mistaken, I was under the impression that DSPAM required training as well before becoming an effective tool...

    DSPAM is disabled by default since 4.5.0 (IIRC), because of performance issues.

    As far as training goes it is done every night when the cron jobs run to train DSPAM (look for the zmtrainsa jobs in cron). The training is only a performance issue for larger sites, it's perfectly OK for a home server.

    Ok,

    Will double check if DSPAM's pluging for SA is disabled or not, and will let the cron job do its thing

    How does one test rules though? Got an install on Ubuntu, but there doesn't seem to be a "spamassassin" to run with "--lint" ... am I missing something, or is the SA completly integrated in amavisd?

    Well one way to test is to sign up for a bunch of junk mail

    That's actually how I trained my server. I signed up for as much spam as I could. I trained it all so that my users wouldn't have to.
