Hello everyone. I just switched to MIAB, and what an amazing setup. Thanks to Josh for creating an amazing package.
So my SA-LEARN shows clearly that when I move messages from inbox to spam, they are adding up as nspam. I’ve been training my Spam Assassin database now for a week, and every day i’m getting about 20 messages to 50 messages in my INBOX which I’d like to be marked as SPAM.
IMPORTANT: These are messages from variousl newsletters and mailing lists. So it is the same news source every morning.
So I’ve been dragging them from Inbox to Junk, and I see the numbers on the Spam Database (sa-learn --dump magic) go up gradually. Which shows the plugins are working great.
Now my question is, why is SPAM ASSASSIN not marking these messages with a bigger SPAM score? I see in the headers that there is a SPAM score on them, but since I’ve been training the SPAM database, when the similar message arrives from that same news source, why would it not automatically go to Junk Mail?
The headers show that the SPAM WEIGHT isn’t high enough (1.8 vs 5.0 or above). Shouldn’t that training help the Spam Score go up? Or shoudn’t that training somehow tell Spam Assassin, hey this guy moved this message from INBOX to SPAM 17 times, so it must be SPAM, hence therefore let’s automatically help him, and move this message to SPAM?
What am I doing wrong? Or this is the expected behaviour and will it take forever to learn?
Any ideas? Thanks.
