It may still be interesting to experiment with bogofilter.

Bogofilter will still eat up CPU, it's a Bayes.

I've been using those 3 DNS-RBL + some occasionnal whitelisting with very good success:

  • sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org
  • psbl.surriel.com
  • dnsbl.sorbs.net

That filters out ~70% of incoming spams and is not a source of a single complaint. False positives mostly come from RFC checks (helo, reverse/forward dns, etc.) and bayesian filtering, by far.

This item has been reassigned from the project FSF France machines management task tracker to your tracker.

The original report is still available at task #7220

[field #13] Summary: mail.gna.org: use bogofilter
[field #14] Original Submission: Using bogofilter in addition to spamassassin should save CPU time, even if solely trained on spam as detected by spamd.

Maybe some short greylisting could help as well, for instance one minute. I m not sure spambots would keep trying for more than one minute while this would have no noticeable impact on legit users.
