For the most part, you can ignore the contents of your ~/.spamassassin/ directory, which is automatically created for you the first time you receive mail at Nevis. The one file that you might want to look at is ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs, which allows you to control the functionality of SpamAssassin.

Your mail reader may also offer spam-filtering options. The advantages of SpamAssassin are similar to those of using procmail:

  • SpamAssassin offers more flexibility than most mail readers. For example, you can control the exact weighting assigned to each one of the tests that SpamAssassin performs.

  • SpamAssassin runs on the mail server, which means it operates on your e-mail as it receives it. A mail reader can only process your messages as it reads them off the server. In particular, if you blacklist an address in ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs, it will be bounced by the mail server and never get into your INBOX.
