The anti-spam portion of Warden is powered by Spamassassin®. Spamassassin is the #1 Open Source anti-spam platform giving system administrators a filter to classify email and block spam.
It uses a robust scoring framework and plug-ins to integrate a wide range of advanced heuristic and statistical analysis tests on email headers and body text including text analysis, Bayesian filtering, DNS blocklists, and collaborative filtering databases.
SPAM - Spam, also known as junk email, is a type of electronic spam where unsolicited messages are sent by email.
HAM - Ham is e-mail that is not Spam. In other words, "non-spam", or "good mail". It should be considered a shorter, snappier synonym for "non-spam".
The SpamAssassin daemon should never be started because it is never used with Amavis. It would be a waste of resources to have it running. Warden will try to disable the spamassassin daemon on installation.
You can manually run the sa-update command to update your SpamAssassin rules.
