Topic: Spam E-Mail is not "killed"
==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====
- iRedMail version: 1.6.2 MARIADB
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: Rocky Linux 8.5
- Manage mail accounts with iRedAdmin-Pro? No
Excerpt from /etc/amavisd.conf
$sa_tag_level_deflt = -999; # add spam info headers if at, or above that level $sa_tag2_level_deflt = 3; # add 'spam detected' headers at that level $sa_kill_level_deflt = 7; # triggers spam evasive actions (e.g. blocks mail) $sa_dsn_cutoff_level = 9; # spam level beyond which a DSN is not sent $final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;
I made sure these settings only exist once.
Excerpt of a X-SPAM Header of a detected Spam E-Mail.
X-Spam-Flag: YES X-Spam-Score: 8.721 X-Spam-Level: ******** X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=8.721 tagged_above=-999 required=3 tests=[DRUGS_ERECTILE=2.221, HTML_FONT_LOW_CONTRAST=1, HTML_IMAGE_ONLY_28=4, HTML_IMAGE_RATIO_04=0.5, HTML_MESSAGE=0.25, SPF_HELO_NONE=0.5, SPF_PASS=-0.25, T_TVD_MIME_EPI=0.5] autolearn=no autolearn_force=no
Based on the settings for $sa_kill_level_deflt and $final_spam_destiny I would expect e-mail with a spam score of 8.721 to be discarded, i.e. not delivered to inbox.
While this e-mail is marked as "[SPAM]" it is still delivered to the inbox.
How can I achieve the expected result? I can't find the faulty configuration that is leading to $sa_kill_level_deflt being ignored.
