Block india seo spam

Hello there,
Anyone have an idea on how to block the India seo spam?


Could you share examples? especially with the full headers?

Spam Blocking is a delicate balance between allowing legit email and stopping spammers. It’s cat and mouse and if an email doesn’t come from a spammy IP/domain, it can be difficult to accurately classify.

Spamassasin seem to be installed with Mail-in-a-Box,
however how we manage it because I have this if I try to start it.

SpamAssassin Mail Filter Daemon: disabled, see /etc/default/spamassassin

Thank you

run ps -auxf | grep spampd on your MIAB host.

You should see a bunch of spam proxy daemon processes running. They proxy email to various spam filters.

If not, then you’ve got a problem and we’ll need to diagnose why spam proxy daemon isn’t running.

Here’s the relevant setup:
