SpamAssassin tuning home : internet : mail : toaster : filtering : mail delivery maildrop

The final layer of protection is at the mailbox level. This is where the user gets to opt into using SpamAssassin, and route suspected spam into a .Spam folder. If there is to be user selectable preferences, this is where they belong. Install support for this is mostly configured for you (all but installing the SASQL plugin).

By default, the Mail::Toaster uses maildrop for local delivery. There are other mechanisms available for fighting spam but none that are easily implemented or that don't have other nasty side affects.

Individual users can choose to use the spam filtering by logging into their accounts using qmailadmin and selecting the "Spam Detection" checkbox. Once they have done so, spam messages will be routed to their spam folder.
