I was having problems with my mails and finally found that it was spamassassin that was causing them. Mails would keep coming in again and again. First I thought it was my ISP, but then it started to happen with other accounts too, so I started looking. I deleted all my filters et voila, no more double mails. I added them again and started deleting one by one, and yes it was spamassassin. I guess it was taking spamassassin that long to process that the connection timed out and evolution couldn't send the DELE command to the POP. I added the --local option and now it runs much faster. Could it be that it can't find my proxy settings or something like that?


I had the same problem.. to stop doing that, when you create the filter to run spamassasin.. under 'then' box add a new action, and select 'Stop Processing'. Now I dont get any double mails! :D

Thanks for the Howto.

Just set this up on Evolution 1.5.7 and it works a treat with Spamassassin 2.63.

Once again, Thanks !

Am I the only one suffering because of the shocking performance of spamd? It's an absolute CPU hog.

True, but in my opinion Evolution 2.0 is in all slower/sluggier than Evolution 1.4.6. If I switch between folders, it may take up to 3 seconds before it actually makes the switch. Using a Athlon XP 1600 with 512 megs of RAM.
