    I have following scenario with ISPConfig platform:
    1. ispconfig server is responsible for several domains (email ends on this server)
    2. ispconfig acts as a gateway for other domains and email should be cleaned up and relied to target email server

    In case 1 amavis together with spamassassin tags SPAM email messages and add X tag within email´s header

    In case 2 amavis just process antivirus check (X tag in email´s header) but not spam test and no SPAM tag and SPAM score is processed

    Can you help me how to do it?

    Thank you

    Add the addresses or email domains that you want to scan under spamfilter users in ispconfig.

    thank you for answer.

    I have put there a string and set LOCAL to NO

    Is it correct?

    Hi again,

    I set amavis to more logging details and see that clamd and spamassassin are handling message now.

    What is problem that the subject of the email is not filled by my configured sequence from "normal" policy settings

    AND X tag is not put into email header even spamassassin's result is

    Do you know why?

    thanks so much

    Locaal has to be yes. Local no means no spam tagging.

    X tag

    Hi there,
    thank you for your reply.

    I have tested the behaviour and now it is working.

    There is only one difference:
    - when the domain is local one, the X-Spam-Flag is set to YES
    - when the domain is remote (relied emails), the X-Spam-Flag is set to NO

    Why is this difference in place?

    thank you

    Remote (local = no) means outgoing email. outgoing email is never tagged as this might influence the receiver. so all emails that you want to filter must have set local = yes.

    so I am confused now...

    How to tag as a spam message what doesn´t stored locally? I mean - set the X-Spam-Flag to YES even it is remote domain?

    Thank you,

    Yes, thats what I explained already twice above. A domain for incoming email is always local, if you forward, store or delete that email afterwards does not matter for spam scanning.

    Hi there,

    it is working well and header is tagged with X description (even not set as YES).

    I have additional question how to do antivirus and spamcheck for users who are authenticated over submission port.

    Thanks in advance
