To use my list of scores, insert my scores (last updated May 10, 2004) into your spamassassin user_prefs file (~/.spamassassin/user_prefs on Unix). At the top of my user_prefs file are some comments; find the same comments in your user_prefs file and insert my scores there.
You will probably want to set up a whitelist. I whitelist uwaterloo.ca (although this means I get a fair amount of spam that has a forged From: at uwaterloo.ca) by putting the following lines in my user_prefs file:
If you look at the scores in my user_prefs file, a few are listed as 95. This is an attempted to reduce the amount of spam coming from uwaterloo accounts. If you don't whitelist uwaterloo, you may wish to reduce these scores from 95 to 4 or 5. Then again, since these 95 scores are all for forged headers, a score of 95 may be fine.
You will also likely want to whitelist any conference accounts, colleagues, etc.. Air Canada is another one to whitelist, since if you cash in frequent flier miles online, their email is usually classified as spam even with the default spamassassin score settings:
blacklist_from email@example.com these accounts don't exist and any message from them is likely a virus.
"|/software/procmail/bin/procmail"in the course .forward file and using this .procmailrc file. In this .procmailrc file, you will want to change where it says
firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com a list of accounts to which the course email is to be forwarded. Also, you may want to use a subject string other than "cg:" to accept message for your course ("cg" for "computer graphics").
