Perhaps there is something different about it compared to the
other 11 of them...  :-)

RE: Another call for improvements

I have created a public Folder on the exchange box for spam where users have access to drop emails, but not
view the contents of the folder.
I then run a script every hour where my MailScanner box connects to the public folder and learns from the mail
in there.
Once a week I run a script to clear the contents of the folder.

Re: Another call for improvements


I would like the configuration file to be put into a database 
(optionally). If there's an option in the config file that is the name 
of the file that does database accesses for the configuration 
information then it ignores the rest of the file and begins to call that 
function to get the configuration information. This would make keeping 
multiple copies of MailScanner correctly sync'ed up much easier and 
allow an extension of MailWatch to make configuration changes.

Best way to test links?

Hi,

I have a phishing problem that is getting me crazy.

 

I send a HTML e-mail with a link to http://localhost/eicar.com or another link with virus (.cmd or .pif). I’m running apache in MS and put eicar in apache root directory. I’ve tested all links with wget in MS server and I get all of them.

 

I tried to use MS with clamav with feature “mail-follow-urls” but my message is still passing thought MS.

 

What it´s wrong?

 

What is the best way to test links inside html file?

 

Thanks in advance,

Mauricio.

Is there currently a way to have the installation scripts create a log 
file so we can see what happened if things don't work out?

RE: Use TNEF Contents problem

Nope.  Haven't had a chance, yet.  As luck would have it, my host's name
servers were down for hours yesterday, so I had to deal with that.  If
anyone else has tried, please let me know.

Thanks,
Alden

Have you tried
TNEF Contents = add
?
It's quite possible that Outlook-only features may be mis-rendered by 
Outlook when the Outlook features are replaced.

This may be a good reason to change the default to
TNEF Contents = add

What does anyone else think of this setting?

Re: Another call for improvements

Requests/ideas:
1) Add Variables for the default filetype and filename conf files in MailScanner.conf.  This allows for easier concatenation of multiple rulesets in the rules directory.
 
Example:
mailscanner.conf:
# Set location of the default filetype rules
%def-ft-rules% = %etc-dir%/filetype.rules.conf
# Set location of the default filename rules
%def-fn-rules% = %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf
This allows the following to be used:
rules/filename.rules:
FromOrTo:  * <at> domain1.tld    %rules-dir%/sites/domain1.tld/filename.rules.conf %def-fn-rules%
FromOrTo:  * <at> domain2.tld    %rules-dir%/sites/domain2.tld/filename.rules.conf %def-fn-rules%
FromOrTo:       default           %def-fn-rules%  # Default filename ruleset
 
rules/filetype.rules:
FromOrTo:  * <at> domain1.tld    %rules-dir%/sites/domain1.tld/filetype.rules.conf %def-ft-rules%
FromOrTo:  * <at> domain2.tld    %rules-dir%/sites/domain2.tld/filetype.rules.conf %def-ft-rules%
FromOrTo:       default         %def-ft-rules%  # Default filetype ruleset
2) review MailScanner.conf.  There are several options that do not state what the available valid options.
Obviously this does not apply to all options.
example:
# valid options: [yes], [no] or [filename of a ruleset]
Content Modify Subject = yes
3) See http://www.archlinux.org/~simo/archstats/  This is a volunteer program with anonymous system information.  It would be interesting to have MailScanner collect similiar info.  MS could even collect information as to what percentage of the user base is using the defaults settings for an given option.  example... Whats's the min/max/average and mode of the "Required SpamAssassin Score".

Any of you got any features which you really need?
I don't guarantee to implement them, or even consider them :-)

Anything you don't like, anything you particularly like (gratitude is
always welcome :-) I'm a right sucker for it :-)

At the moment there aren't any features people want, other than a 200%
speed improvement which I've done my best for in the past.

Don't ignore anything you have asked for in the past, consider them
forgotten :-(

Regards,
Jules.

Although this may seem like a good idea, my only concern about
something like this is that the chance of a mysql server crashing
compared to a txt file crashing is hugly different.

Also, is it not quicker to read from a txt file, than it would be to
do sql queries?
