Hello. I installed sylpheed-claws-spamassassin, and read what I could
find on it, and on spamassassin, on my computer. Alas, Sylpheed-claws
is not picking up any of the spam.
I tried starting spamassassin, but get this message:
debian:/home/mark# /etc/init.d/spamassassin start
SpamAssassin Mail Filter Daemon: disabled, see /etc/default/spamassassin
debian:/home/mark# locate /etc/default/spamassassin
Note, after installing spamassassin and sylpheed-claws-spamassassin
plugin, which I did enable, I ran updatedb, so that I would be able to
find files. Spamassassin tells me to see a file that does not exist on
my system. Is there a way to get it working? Should I also install the
spampd file? Or something else?
I am not using my own mailserver, but rather, as many people do, use an
smtp connection to my internet service provider, who provides me with an
email (a pop3 account). Is spamassassin the wrong tool for filtering
the spam that I get? I've been using mailfilter, which sort of works,
and Icedove's Junk filters, but both these things miss a lot. Since
I've heard good reviews of Spamassassin, I thought I would try it. I
decided to try it with sylpheed-claws, since there was a specific
spamassassin package for this mail-client.
I'm using a fully upgraded Debian Etch.
