Spamav.com is a powerful email filtering tool that can help you identify and eliminate spam and virus emails. In this blog post, we will discuss how to set up and use Spamav.com to ensure that your email inbox stays free from unwanted emails. We will cover topics such as turning on spam and virus scanning, changing delivery destinations, reducing CPU load with Clamd, and moving spam and virus scanning to another system.
Turning On Spam and Virus Scanning
To enable filtering for a new or existing virtual server, you can simply select the Spam filtering enabled? and Virus filtering enabled? checkboxes in the features section of the Create or Edit Virtual Server page. If these options do not appear, you need to enable them globally on your system by logging in as root and checking the boxes next to Spam filtering and Virus filtering under the Features and Plugins section.
Changing Delivery Destinations
By default, email classified as spam is delivered to the ~/Maildir/.spam file under each user’s home directory, while email containing viruses is deleted automatically. However, you can change these destinations on a per-domain basis using Virtualmin. To do this, log in to Virtualmin as root or the domain owner, select the domain from the left menu, open the Server Configuration category, and click on Spam and Virus Delivery. From there, you can change the destination for spam and virus emails to whatever you want.
Reducing CPU Load with Clamd
In the default Virtualmin configuration, each email received is processed with the clamscan command to check for viruses. However, this can take a long time and lead to high CPU load on the system, especially on VPS systems with limited resources. To reduce CPU load, you can enable the use of the ClamAV server process, which loads the virus database just once and stays running. To enable Clamd, log in to Virtualmin as root, open the Email Messages category, and click on Spam and Virus Scanning. Then, click on the Enable ClamAV Server button and change the Virus scanning program to Server scanner (clamdscan).
