    I tried the backup cache recipe in the sample procmailrc file at the
    above URL and I got procmail errors.

    I made a small change to my backup cache recipe. I posted some of my
    recipes in
    13trbnl515e50a5@corp.supernews.com

    Instead of
    sed -e 1,100d`
    my backup cache recipe now has
    sed -e 1,1000d`
    and that seems to be working fine.

    My backup cache has been increasing in size since I made the change,
    with no procmail errors in my logfile. The backup cache now has
    approx. 450 emails. I expect it to increase to 1000 emails before
    the oldest start being deleted.

    The above recipe works fine with procmail v3.21 2001/06/29 via my
    shell account at my ISP.

    I think I must have an unusual setup for email.

    My ISP uses Spamassassin, and I can adjust scores for Spamassassin
    via WWW. If I turn off the filtering via WWW, Spamassassin scores
    the email based on my desired scores but does not filter any email.

    I have a shell account at my ISP. I use procmail via my shell
    account to filter for the
    X-Spam-Flag: YES
    line.

    I do not pipe mail to spamassassin via my shell account or via my
    standalone box at home.

    I use my shell account at my ISP to call the Spambouncer set of
    procmail recipes after my recipe above in order to cut down on the
    amount of work my ISP's box has to do. That is my intention, anyway,
    and I would be disappointed if I were not saving my ISP's box some
    work. I know less than it might seem. I just hate spam.

  3. Re: Spamassassin and spam

    I just reverted back to Mandriva 2006, and no spam at all...=0)
    Call me yellow, but I got tired of all the tinkering, will wait now and
    see what comes out of the upcoming Mandriva editions regarding Procmail,
    seems like there are very much gifted people out there, so I feel pretty
    sure that this will be fixed...i hope...
    Happy Easter to everyone.

    Oops, my bad - after a 'pipe to spamassassin' recipe I have anohter recipe
    that forwards spam-flagged mails to another account. Procmail was
    attempting to forward the test mail before it reached the /dev/null
    recipe. The /dev/null action does work normally AFAICT.

    Nice setup. I wish my ISP offered these options.

    A new build of Procmail arrived on the Cooker mirrors this morning with a
    patch that fixes bug 27484 so maybe you'd like to try again when 2008.1
    Spring is released.

    The problem I thought affected /dev/null actually does not - it was the
    above bug triggered by a recipe I had overlooked. Were you getting
    'X-Spam-Status: Yes' mails delivered to your inbox or was Spamassassin not
    scoring your spam high enough to be flagged as spam?

    Hi Snowbat and thanks for the message.
    I was getting a lot of spam, and the header did not read "Spamassassin
    so and so" it looked for my un-trained eyes like the mail was getting
    delivered normaly to my account, without being close to spamassassin.
    I am looking forward to 2008.1 edition, then I will give this another try.

    Happy Easter.
