In the past I've used a combination of spamhaus combined RBL's and
Spamassassin with Mailscanner as my spam recipe, but this stopped
working very well for me well over a year ago. As many of the users of
the couple small/personal mail servers I run are NOT technical people,
and use POP to read their mail, 'training' spamassassin is difficult at
best. Once upon a time, using the Rules Du Jour scripts from the SARES
project worked pretty well, but that has been shut down, and really
hasn't been functional in over a year.
I've just rebuilt a friends mail server with centos 5.2 (it was running
FC3 or something before) and would like to setup them up with a decent
anti-spam recipe that doesn't require extensive tinkering or training.
does anyone have a good recipe for this? Ideally I'd like something
purely RPM based that doesn't require extensive configuration and
tuning. I've never setup razor before, how well does that work if
the mail users aren't in a position to feed it training data?
