FAQ
I have a dedicated server (purchased through godaddy, don't cringe)
The server is running Red Hat Fedora Core 8
Control Panel is Plesk 9.2.3 Deluxe Pack

I am computer savvy but limited experience with Linux, let alone a linux
server.

The server has a mailman installation on it. I am trying to configure SPAM
protection. I have Spamassassin installed and enabled on the server

What I am having difficulty with is finding documentation on interfacing
with the Spamassassin installation via the Plesk control panel. There are
some minor settings under SPAM filtering, however I cannot figure out where
the messages would go if they are tagged as SPAM or any sort of approval
que.

I have VERY limited exposure to running commands off of terminal but am
willing to try.

Anyone with experience with this sort of setup - or other advice on how they
set a similar server up to prevent SPAM - advice greatly appreciated.

    Spamassassin doesn't do that. See
    <http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/spamassassin/branches/3.3/README>.

    SpamAssassin adds headers to the message and possibly tags the Subject:

    Examples of added headers are

    X-Spam-Status: Yes
    X-Spam-Level: ******

    Within Mailman, you can use header_filter_rules to detect and act on
    these headers. For example, to discard messages with SA scores >= 10
    and hold the remaing messages with scores >=5, you would use a rule
    with regexp

    ^x-spam-level:\s*\*{10,}

    and action Discard, and a rule with regexp

    ^x-spam-level:\s*\*{5,9}(\s|$)

    and action Hold.
