Original How-To

Original How-To by Joshua Prismon before it was integrated into ZCS follows:


Download and decompress DSPAM

Note, everything I am doing here, I do as the user zimbra. If I need super user, I use sudo.

The configuration options I used were: .

./configure \
   --prefix=/opt/dspam \
   --sysconfdir=/opt/dspam/conf \
   --with-dspam-home=/var/dspam \
   --with-dspam-home-mode=2770 \
   --with-dspam-home-owner=zimbra \
   --with-dspam-home-group=zimbra \
   --with-storage-driver=mysql_drv \
   --enable-preferences-extension \
   --with-mysql-includes=/usr/include/mysql \
   --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/mysql \
   --enable-signature-headers \
   --without-delivery-agent \
   --without-quarantine-agent \
   --with-dspam-owner=zimbra \
   --with-dspam-group=zimbra
make

(as root)

make install


After this login as the zimbra user. Make sure that MySQL is running. Then create a new table for DSPAM related info:

mysqladmin create dspam

After that load the schema for the dspam tables

mysql dspam < ~/dspam-3.6.1/src/tools.mysql_drv/mysql_objects-4.1.sql

We don't want to use the same user that we use for zimbra for dspam for the database. So create a new user:

mysql
grant all on dspam.* to dspam@localhost identified by 'ThisIsMyPassword';

(Obviously change your password)

Inside of your dspam.conf add the following lines (they are commented out be default)

MySQLServer        /opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock
MySQLPort			7306
MySQLUser          dspam
MySQLPass          ThisIsMyPassword
MySQLDb            dspam


Now we have to tell amavisd-new (which serves as a pipeline for various steps proccessing email before zimbra's java code sees emails) to enable dspam Search for the $path and $dspam variables and replace them.

To make things a bit tricky, dspam uses auto-generated files, so modify the file amavisd.conf.in rather then amavisd.conf.

$path = '/opt/zimbra/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/opt/dspam/bin';
$dspam = 'dspam';

I suggest you run amavisd once by hand with the debug options to make sure everything works:

/opt/zimbra/amavisd/sbin/amavisd -c /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf debug

And if everything is happy you should see lines like:

That should get you to where both DSPAM and SpamAssassin check for spams.

Later once DSPAM's own database has been built up, I suggest that you add the following lines to one of SpamAssassin's rule files (salocal.cf?) to filter out mail that DSPAM thinks is bogus:

    header DSPAM_SPAM X-DSPAM-Result =~ /^Spam$/
    describe DSPAM_SPAM DSPAM claims it is spam
    score DSPAM_SPAM 0.5

    header DSPAM_HAM X-DSPAM-Result =~ /^Innocent$/
    describe DSPAM_HAM DSPAM claims it is ham
    score DSPAM_HAM -0.1

Anyways, what I write here is my own, with the exceptions that I lifted off of the amavis-new list, esp this message: [url]http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=11025890[/url]

This works for me so far, filtering seems to work, and seems to be effective. I will post about training as soon as I have finished up doing it.
