SpamAssassin, spam_buttons, Squirrelmail, and CentOS 3
After more than 6 years, I’m finally starting to get spam on my primary dmurray.ca email address. It has certainly helped that the address has not been published: my fans need to use my contact page first. The QVCS Guide has clear instructions on configuring SpamAssassin to filter out spam. Once I had this configured I tracked down the spam_buttons plugin for SquirrelMail. Theoretically, spam_buttons should have been an easy way to mark email as spam or ham (non-spam) from SquirrelMail. Alas, I had to fight a little to get this working. The missing piece was
sudo -H in config.php.
- Follow the spam_buttons INSTALL instructions.
- In /etc/sudoers:
apache ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/sa-learn
- In spam_buttons/config.php:
$is_spam_shell_command = 'sudo -H -u ###USERNAME### /usr/bin/sa-learn --spam'; $is_not_spam_shell_command = 'sudo -H -u ###USERNAME### /usr/bin/sa-learn --ham';
