Not receiving email sent from hotmail or msn accts

I have a default webmin/virtualmin - latest version GPL setup. If anyone with ahotmail or msn account sends me an email it does not get into my box.


I looked in the mail log and found this:

Nov 18 15:13:52 www postfix/qmgr[2981]: 082F085815A: from=<>, size=1749, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Nov 18 15:13:53 www postfix/smtpd[10473]: disconnect from[]
Nov 18 15:13:56 www postfix/local[10931]: 082F085815A: to=<>, orig_to=<>, relay=local, delay=6.1, delays=1.6/0/0/4.5, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to command: /usr/bin/procmail-wrap$
Nov 18 15:13:56 www postfix/qmgr[2981]: 082F085815A: removed

Hmmm…Looks like it’s being filtered either at the spam or AV filter level, since it made it to procmail.

Have a look at the Search Mail Logs page and see if it’ll tell you what happened to that message. You can search based on sender and recipient and date. (Select the virtual server in question, and click “Search Mail Logs” in the “Logs and Reports” menu.)

Yes I realized it had reached the spam threshold and was being discarded. I had the level set to 1.5 in spamassassin as that is what I have used before, but before messages identified as spam did not get removed but were delivered with the subject modified.

Now anything identified as spam doesn’t get delivered.

Where do I go to change this?

I tried Webmin - Servers - SpamAssassin Mail Filter - Procmail Spam Delivery

and changed the selection for "Action for messages classified as spam"
Append to mbox-format mail file
Deliver normally

with no effect.

Does something need to be restarted besides Postfix?

Thanks again

Not even Postfix needs to be restarted. Though, if you’re using spamc (with spamassassin in daemonized form), then you’d need to reload SpamAssassin.

In Virtualmin GPL, it’s going to depend on a few factors…but you’re probably going to want to make modifications in the SpamAssassin module’s “Spam Classification” page.

There isn’t anything in SpamAssassin’s “Spam Classification” that has to do with how the messages are delivered…

Right now messages with a score over 5.0 are getting deleted, or sent somewhere else…

The "Procmail Spam Delivery" has an option asking what to do with messages but I set it and nothing changed.

This is frustrating…

Ok I think I have addressed it…

I edited the file: /etc/procmailrc

| /usr/bin/spamassassin
#* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

I commented out the lines above(with comments) and now I get all mail including messages marked as spam, though those just have the header rewritten with +++SPAM+++

Also it seems that I can just comment one of those lines(either one) and have the same effect.

Is there any issue with doing what I am doing? Is it ok to comment both out or should I uncomment one of them?


Oh an yeah I am using the GPL version…
