Question regarding mailserver setup

Jonas Thambert
Hi,

Im using postfix,amavisd,clamav,spamassassin on a OpenBSD 3.9 server.
The setup works great. The problem I have is that I would
like to use Razor or Pyzor. I tried and installed razor but it
doesnt seem to work very well. On another Linux server I have
Pyzor and it catches almost all spam I get.

What is the best anti-spam solution to use for OpenBSD?


Regards Jonas

as for me, greylisting seems to the most efficient( spamd or postgrey);
i also use razor and dcc, but they aren't noticeably effective.

Maybe this [1] will give you some hints( it covers DCC setup).

Allow me to compare/contrast my anti-spam solution of 2 months ago with
my present solution.

Two months ago:
OS: OpenBSD 3.9
MTA: sendmail
AV: None
Server anti-spam: None
Client anti-spam: spamassassin with bayes; no network tests
Average total spam per day: 100
Average spam in INBOX per day: 20

Present:
OS: OpenBSD 3.9
MTA: sendmail
AV: None
Server anti-spam: spamd in greylisting mode
Client anti-spam: spamassassin with bayes; network tests enabled
Average total spam per day: 0.17
Average spam in INBOX per day: 0.02

Summary:
I used to have to download 6000 spam messages every 2 months; now I
download 10. I used to have 1200 spam messages in my INBOX; now I have
but 1. This is just for my account.

Have a great day!
