Question / Problem

Is it possible to alter the standard SpamAssassin rules? So i can weigh a rule with less, or more points.Is there a way to update SpamAssassin or ClamAV, or is this happening automatically?



Answer / Solution

Yes, you can adjust the SpamAssassin rules as you like.
In Exchange Server Toolbox you can use the build in custom SpamAssassin config file editor which you can find under Spam Options to create a .cf-file suited to your needs.

For further references see:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SPAMASSASSIN/WritingRules

Alternatively you can create a .cf-file manually and store it together with all the other .cf-files.
We recommend to use the letter "X" as prefix for the name of your CF-file (like"XMyRules.cf").

"ClamAv in a Box" and "SpamAssassin in a Box", also integrated in SmartPOP2Exchange and Exchange Server Toolbox already update their rules / virus signatures every 3 hours automatically.
