1/30  So, if i'm using spamassassin -p /my/prefs/file and want to change to
      spamc, can I?  I maned spamc and didn't see a analogous flag.
        \_ Currently, you can't; the protocol spamc uses to talk to spamd
           doesn't include any way to specify which prefs file to use.
           This wouldn't be too hard to add, though, if you think it would
           be useful -- let me know.  --mconst

8/12    Ugg, no spamd any longer?  I figured I'd have to just give up on my
        soda address (sad, very sad) but Vacation doesn't seem to be installed
        either, so I can't even leave a mesg. to people telling them where
        tom mail me now.  Or can I ?  Any advice out there.  Or can we get
        spamassassin/spamd reinstalled or Vacation or... help....
        \_ Ha, gmail as spamassassin.  presently I am forwarding to gmail

7/17    Thanks to steven, et al. for restoring Soda. In lieu of www.csua providing
        status, could there be a text file with current status and future plans.
        I'm wondering if SpamAssassin is obsolete (and my procmailrc and scripts)
        and won't be restored, and what's filtering spam now.  thanks!
        \_ How do I buy steven a beer or donate gobs of money?
           \_ I got him a Hacker-Pschorr, he seems to like ales.  Prob IPAs

5/7     Dear csua, looks like /usr/bin/spamc and /usr/bin/formail don't exist
        on the emailer. I'm getting a bunch of binaries not found error
        on my .procmail-log.
    \_ Complaining via motd is not a reliable way to be heard and get your
       stuff fixed. Try emailing us. --t

4/17    How do I get procmail to delete emails with things like
        ^Viiiaaaagggrrra in the message body.  ^V then i+ then a+ ...
        \- a better rule would be to check for the language type, and
           if it's undeterminable or has too many misspellings then
           it's most likely spam email. ps i'm gay ok thx.
        \_ Thatd be some pretty impressive regex magic, to get all imaginable

3/10    Is there a reliable way to control spam on soda?
        Can someone write an "any undergrad can do it" level FAQ?  Thanks.
        \_ echo "/dev/null" > ~/.forward
        \_ I use Thunderbird to check my soda mail.
        \_ Forward to gmail.  Let google's spam filter work for you.

8/11    Is spamassassin working?  Anybody using procmail with spamassassin?
        >spamc -R < /usr/share/doc/spamc/sample-spam.txt

8/13    hey root would you restore /csua/bin/mtd ? thanks.
        \_ Have you emailed root?  Because the motd.public isn't the preferred
           contact method.

6/28    Q: What are folks using these days for anti-spam measures?  I'm
        looking for something that integrates with my MTA (postfix) or my
        delivery agent (sieve).  Currently I'm using a crufty version of
        spamassassin wired into postfix via amavisd-new.  It's decent, but I
        don't want to be bothered with manually upgrading spamassassin or
        updating rulesets on a regular basis.  Anyone have any experience

3/25    Despite the fact that my .spamassassin/user_prefs file has the spam
        threshold set to 0.0, spamassassin is using 3.0, and consequently I
        am getting tons of spam in my inbox.  This didn't seem to be
        occuring several weeks or months ago.  What can I do to fix it?
