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
           and then forwarding to where I really want it from there.
           don't know why I feel compelled to share my kludge. -top
        \_ Stop bitching and ask someone on root. I've emailed asking if this
           was intentional. Also, storing mail on soda has been deprecated for
           the past year and a half. Man up and .forward it already.
           \_you misunderstand.  I *have* been forwarding it already.  (for
             quite a long time).  But filtered I sent it through spamc first
             avoiding, among other problems, loops caused by my anti-spam
             service bouncing it when it is spam), now i am forwarding it
        \_ Apparently spamd was never even set up.
           \_ spamassassin used to work, back in the day.
              \_ back in the day when the roads in berkeley to silicon valley
                 venture funds were paved in gold, every startup IPOd and
                 moore's law worked

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        I'm wondering if SpamAssassin is obsolete (and my procmailrc and scripts)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.
        \_ I use spamassassin. I just checked and it caught all but one of

8/11    Is spamassassin working?  Anybody using procmail with spamassassin?
        >spamc -R < /usr/share/doc/spamc/sample-spam.txt
        returns 0/0
        \_ It hasn't worked for me for about a month.

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.
           \_  I did.

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?
2007/3/16-20 [Computer/SW/SpamAssassin] UID:45997 Activity:nil
3/16    Is there a way to configure spamassassin to delete junk messages from
        my /var/mail/{login} spool before I run my mail client program?  Thx.
