Thanks to some help from Ian, I have the SA Trainer script running and have processed over 200 ham and spam emails.

Q: How do I know SA is using the results? Seems on one of my accounts on my domain,  the spam traffic has dropped drastically. But not my personal account.

Thanks for any insights.

Do I understand that if SpamAssassin is using BAYES that it will create the spam folder (for that user)  when it first assigned a spam score to an email? I've trained 475 of each and still don't have a spam box.

Help!

Thanks!

I've been using SpamAssassin for years, but recently found this script!  Everything I've seen looks great!  Happy Happy Joy Joy I do have a couple questions though.

I used the script builder selecting the option for "low intervension" so that my multiple email accounts (multi-users) can forward spam/ham to a general account.  I've noticed when I do this that the fowarded emails get dumped into the "mailbox-name/new" folder.  When I run the script, it returns only that "mailbox-name/cur" has been checked with 0 results for Spam/Ham.  I took a look at the code (I know a few different languages, but Perl is not my forte) and it appears to only check the "cur" folder and ignores the "new" folder.  How can I modify the code or my cpanel settings to correct this?

Additionally, since I'm having my users forward emails to the spam/ham boxes, is it acceptable to have multiple spam/ham emails forwarded together as opposed to forwarding each individual spam/ham? 

Thanks in advance for response.
Mike

I  sent Ian an email and haven't heard back ... is he still active?

I need some help with the spamassin ... I run the script and get this message (where "mydomain" is a substitute for my actual domain)

Autodetected mail storage as Maildir; you could speed up this script slightly if you configure $mail_format in the script to "Maildir"

Training SpamAssassin for mydomain.com:
Checking /home/user/mail/mydomain/user/.scan-spam/cur/ to learn SPAM: Learned tokens from 0 message(s) (1 message(s) examined)
Checking /home/user/mail/mydomain/user/.scan-ham/cur/ to learn HAM: Learned tokens from 0 message(s) (0 message(s) examined)

Am I supposed to be sending everything to the account I set up for all this rather than expecting the script to "learn" from the scan-spam folder in my user folder?

Thanks for help, anyone.

For some reason, I'm starting to get a lot of spam from the same source. Even though I've had the script examine dozens of them, they still score pretty low (under 3 and sometimes as little as 1)

I'm assuming nothing has changed with SpamAssassin AFA Bayes?

Hey all, I'm still actively supporting this script nearly a decade later! Thumbs Up

The script is up to v4.02 and has a nicer layout and some links to documentation and a live support option through Google Helpouts if you're really stuck. There's also a link on the new script's HTML output to contact me directly via Email.

Build your own script: http://iandouglas.com/sa-trainer/

On top of this, I was also looking to see if there's a video tutorial. Is there one available?

No, I've never made a video tutorial on setting it up. I've written up pretty clear instructions, and if the "build your own" script doesn't do the job, you can contact me for personal help.
