OSBF-lua rules

by on stmllr.net

Last week, I moved my IMAP account from university to a privately hosted server. At the same time, I said goodbye to Spamassassin and switched to OSBF-lua - the results were impressive...

Already installed by Michael, I just had to create some maildrop rules to feed OSBF-lua. After training the bayes database with 42 pieces of spam and 9 of ham, almost any following spam was classified correctly as bulk. The training was easy. Besides some perl/shell scripts, the bayes filter can be trained by sending false pos/negs back to OSBF-lua. You simply have to change the 'Subject:' and 'To:' headers (remember majordomo?). The first thing that came to my mind was: Hey, this could easily be done with a one-click button in Thunderbird. Any extension out there?
