Re: [Evolution] spam filtering via evo with an alternate mailbox?

First off, let me say, my incoming mailbox, which I've switched to

I just went through this process, and have been quite successful.
Anyway, I set up a filter which "Pipes message to shell command"
spamassassin -e (with a hard path), and refiles the message if there's a
nonzero exit status to my "evospam" folder.

It's not working.  I'm bummed.  I get HUGE quantities of spam.

I'm no expert on this sort of thing, but I handle this by using procmail to move my mail from the mailspool to ~/mail/MyMail  Along the way, Procmail does some analysis and them invokes spamassassin to check the mail for spam.   This seems to work, particularly since I've got a great body of spam with which to train spamassassin.  I'm still getting some spam, but this process has helped!

Here's one stanza of my .procmailrc:

| spamassassin


* ^X-Spam-Flag: Yes

I hope that this helps!  Please let me know if you need more information about this.
