The following options are set:
Edit->Plugins->Spam detection with spamassassin
Edit->Preferences->Mail options->Spam->Detect if incoming mail is spam
& Include remote tests
I've checked that spamd is up and spamc installed:
debian_etch$ ps -ef | grep spam
root 3859 1 0 Nov29 ? 00:00:03 /usr/sbin/spamd
--create-prefs --max-children 5 --helper-home-dir
jp 9872 3859 0 Nov30 ? 00:01:01 spamd child
jp 9903 3859 0 Nov30 ? 00:00:25 spamd child
jp 3449 4465 0 18:44 pts/3 00:00:00 grep spam
debian_etch$ which spamc
I've selected hundreds of junk messages and manually flagged them as
spam. I've also selected some ham messages and flagged as spam and
afterwards as not spam.
I also thought that the spam folder would get full of junk soon after
flagging some junks messsages but nothing happened. Then I started
setting/unsetting any option I could think off.
