How to train SpamAssassin?

Is there a way to train SpamAssassin from the webmin gui?

If so, any guides?

I keep getting the same Spam for ages and my SpamAssassin is certainly not a good learner.


There are a couple things you can do to improve spam detection.

  1. If you use Usermin, click “Delete Spam” which should tell Spam Assassin that this message is spam and help train it to find future spam.

  2. If you use an email client like Thunderbird or Outlook, you can forward spam messages to “”. This sends the message a special alias managed by Spam Assassin which trains it.
