3.2. SpamAssassin

Now on to the spam filter SpamAssassin.The local configuration file for SpamAssassin is /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf. There are other configuration files in /usr/share/spamassassin but you don't want to edit those as they will be overwritten anytime you update the SpamAssassin package. All configuration is done in /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf. For most situations the default local.cf will suffice. Typically the settings that you will want to change are the point the point thresholds and the actions to be take at these thresholds which is done in the amavisd-new configuration.
