X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 2.64 (2004-01-11) on www2.mrbrklyn.com
X-Spam-Status: No, hits=-4.9 required=4.0 tests=BAYES_00 autolearn=no
Spam Assassin can use baysian filtering and needs to be trained before
it works "best". This is done by creating two aliases like follows:
spam: "|/usr/bin/sa-learn --spam --single"
ham: "|/usr/bin/sa-learn --ham --single"
Then you forward any email that is spam which Spam Assassin failed to
tag as spam to spam-at-yourdomain, and any email Spam Assassin falsely
tagged to ham-at-yourdomain, and it "learns", just like Thunderbird/mozilla
stuff, except it learns for all your users, rather than just for each
one seperately. As for cpu load, I run the spamc daemon and nice it. I
also nice exim (you can nice sendmail too of course), as that keeps
email driven system load stampeding down as well. I am not sure why
most distro's dont nice email daemons by default, since they will for cron.
