RES: Ignoring junk mail

Yan,

Thanks for your response.

However, as I sometimes receive SPAM complaints in my queue, it would be
reject, so I’d like to filter messages based only in the To: and Cc: header
fields. I know this is not totally eficient, but would prevent many SPAMs.

Hi,

I’ve received a lot of junk mail at my RT queues, so I’d like to prevent
it.
Is
possible to reject messages when the To: field do not match my queue’s
e-mail addresses ? Any other ideas ?

spamassassin
or mime-defang + spamassasin
or ask (www.paganini.org/ask)
or (as in my case) spamassasin + ask

Run procmail before invoking rt-mailgate, and apply your filters there:

( Personally I’d much use spamassassin on all incoming mail, but we
get a large number of misdirected spam complaints. )
