Dear iRedMail users,

i got a question about the "Passed SPAM" issue.

Everytime i get a "Passed SPAM" situation it looks like it is getting delivered / forwarded to the mailbox. Is there anyway to remove the e-mail when it has a "Passed SPAM".

Log of a passed spam situation:
Jun 17 23:56:37 mail amavis[14847]: (14847-11) Passed SPAM {RelayedTaggedInbound}, [124.113.218.58]:3739 [124.113.218.58] <ayowciedi@amcham.no> -> <info@existingdomain.com>, Queue-ID: 45SQ5v5nmTz274C, Message-ID: <15007111.13502828.1560808621550@acro.pk>, mail_id: GIPQCRznnmBo, Hits: 6.057, size: 1676, queued_as: 45SQ5x1vSBz2Cqr, 940 ms, Tests: [DEAR_SOMETHING=1.731,FREEMAIL_FORGED_FROMDOMAIN=0.25,FREEMAIL_FROM=0.001,HEADER_FROM_DIFFERENT_DOMAINS=0.25,HTML_MESSAGE=0.001,HTML_MIME_NO_HTML_TAG=0.635,MIME_HTML_ONLY=0.1,RDNS_NONE=1.274,SPF_FAIL=0.919,SPF_HELO_SOFTFAIL=0.896]

The amavis configuration part is:

# SPAM.
$final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;
$spam_quarantine_method = 'sql:';
$spam_quarantine_to = 'spam-quarantine';

I should assume that if there is spam "Passed SPAM situation" than the e-mail will be discarded. But when i read "status=sent delivered via docecot service". i dont get the impression that this is the case.

Please could somebody help me out to configure that the e-mail is getting removed when it hits "Passed SPAM".

An extension to my first post.

Is it possible to that the sending e-mail is not beining informed when spam is detected. Lets say: no bounce, just remove the mail.

Amavisd is configured to query SQL db to get the spam policy settings. For global setting, please update the SQL record in "amavisd.policy" table, with column "policy_name='@.'":

USE amavisd;
SELECT * FROM policy WHERE policy_name='@.' \G

Spam is configured to bypass and not quarantined. if you want to quarantine it, please update "amavisd.policy" table with command below:

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

In /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user, find "spam_admin_maps" and set its value to empty list. For example:

$policy_bank{'ORIGINATING'} = {
    ...
    spam_admin_maps  => [],
    ...
};

Hello ZhangHuangBin,

Thank for your reply.

For the understanding. When i update the polcy table. The server will discard the spam mails.

When i change the "spam_admin_maps" in the amavis 50-user file. The users for which the mails indendid wil not be notified?

Also if this is working. You gonna get another coffee! I am always happy with your fast and conrete response.

Wait a sec, "spam_admin_maps" is a list of system admins, not sender.
Amavisd doesn't notify spam sender.

Re: Passed SPAM and still delivered.

Alright, then i am only going to change the policy in the sql table.

Thanks for the update and please take my coffee!
