Topic: SPAM Mails are delivered sometimes

==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====

====

We have the problem that some SPAM Mails get discarded, but some some. It depends on the recipient.

In /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user we have:
  $sa_kill_level_deflt = 6.9
and later:
  $final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;
It works for some recipients, but some still get the mails

/var/log/maillog shows the following

bar@my-domain.com is a forwarding to ca 20 people.

The SPAM Mails have the following headers:
  X-Spam-Flag: YES
  X-Spam-Score: 10.686
  X-Spam-Level: **
  X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=10.686 tagged_above=2 required=6.2

Does somebody known why these mails are still forwarded to person1, person2 and person3?

Jun 22 17:41:55 mailserver postfix/postscreen[2186]: WHITELISTED [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:19795

Seems like sending mail server is whitelisted

cant really say anything because you altered the logfile

Re: SPAM Mails are delivered sometimes

The line is
  Jun 22 17:41:55 mailserver postfix/postscreen[2186]: WHITELISTED [134.130.5.48]:19795
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is always 134.130.5.48

Ok it was a bug from my site that only these tree person got a SPAM mail. Now everybody gets SPAM mails.

So the mails are delivered because they are coming from a WHITELISTED Server even if they are marked as SPAM? All our mails are coming from 134.130.5.48 because this is the mail relay of my university.

Re: SPAM Mails are delivered sometimes

Seems that the problem was https://forum.iredmail.org/topic15777-p … vered.html

So executing

  USE amavisd;
  UPDATE policy SET spam_lover='N',bypass_spam_checks='N',spam_quarantine_to='spam-quarantine' WHERE policy_name='@.';

resolved the issue.
