There are a two options currently:
- If you're using a dedicated mail client, you could add a client
filter on the header "X-Spam-Status: Yes" or if you need more fine
grained control, X-Spam-Level which will have 0 - 5 '*' characters
depending on the level.
- You could use a short script as a cron on marsh (all members have
cron access enabled by default now so no additional permissions are
needed) that greped for messages containing the line '^X-Spam-Status:
Yes' and moved them to a spam folder. e.g.:
grep -Z -l -e '^X-Spam-Status: Yes' -r $MAILDIR \
--exclude-dir=$SPAMDIR | xargs -0 mv -t $SPAMDIR
For this to work, you'll need to wrap the call in the crontab with
k5start so it has permissions to modify the Maildir:
k5start -qtUf /etc/keytabs/user.daemon/$YOUR_USERNAME_HERE \
Let me know if you need any help setting this up if you use the cron
I do want to overhaul vmail soonish (after we complete the stretch ->
buster OS upgrades) and the updated system will finally allow
procmail/exim/sieve filters for vmail users along with automatic
management of spam (moving to a Spam folder and deletion after 30-90
days), but I don't expect that to be done until early next year at this
