FAQ
Hi folks,

I'm seeing a spike in spam to -owner addresses on the two hosts I
administer.

I'm hoping people can help me change site-wide settings so that I
don't get messages (to -owner addresses) that start something like:

Spam detection software, running on the system "mailman.example.org",
has identified this incoming email as possible spam. The original
message has been attached to this so you can view it (if it isn't
spam) or label similar future email. If you have any questions, see
the administrator of that system for details.

That last sentence is particularly galling since I _am_ the
administrator for the systems in question and I can't spot where in
the configs to keep mailman from forwarding the spam.

What I've got in my mm_cfg.py:

#-------------------------------------------------------------
# Uncomment if you want to filter mail with SpamAssassin. For
# more information please visit this website:
# http://www.daa.com.au/~james/articles/mailman-spamassassin/
GLOBAL_PIPELINE.insert(1, 'SpamAssassin')
SPAMASSASSIN_HOST = 'localhost:783'
SPAMASSASSIN_DISCARD_SCORE = 6
SPAMASSASSIN_HOLD_SCORE = 7
SPAMASSASSIN_MEMBER_BONUS = 2

Yes, I realize the hold score is higher than the discard score. I
don't want held messages. I just want to discard.

I can send a link to an example message off-list if somebody would
like to help me troubleshoot.

Cheers,

    Add your SpamAssassin handler to OWNER_PIPELINE

    OWNER_PIPELINE.insert(1, 'SpamAssassin')

    Thanks! That's the magic I needed.
