Setup blacklist and whitelist for SPAM filter:

Easy method

 

As root, edit the amavisd config at /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in, add 2 lines:

 

#vi  /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in

read_hash(\%whitelist_sender, ‘/opt/zimbra/conf/whitelist’);
read_hash(\%blacklist_sender, ‘/opt/zimbra/conf/blacklist’);

 

Create the list files:

cat <<EOT > /opt/zimbra/conf/whitelist
sathish.com
EOT

cat <<EOT > /opt/zimbra/conf/blacklist
spammer@example.com
EOT

 

Then take effect by:

su – zimbra -c ‘zmamavisdctl restart’

 

 

Alternate method

Edit the amavisd config at /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in, at section:

 

$vi /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in

# ENVELOPE SENDER SOFT-WHITELISTING / SOFT-BLACKLISTING

),

# read_hash(“/var/amavis/sender_scores_sitewide”),

{ # a hash-type lookup table (associative array)

###
### Add custom black / white list here :
###

# blacklisting:
‘promote@somedomain.com’ => 10.0,
‘spammer.com’ => 10.0,

# whitelisting:
‘sathish.com’ => -100.0,

 

And run restart aamvisd to take effect:

$zmamavisdctl stop && zmamavisdctl start

 

Redefine  your   spam score  according to your environment:

That required score is defined by a setting in your admin UI.

Go to Global Settings, the AS/AV tab, and you’ll see kill and tag percentages.

The “Required” score is 20 times the percentage in that tag field.

So for example, 20 * 35% (0.35) = 7. Change that to a lower number and you’ll have a lower required score–I have mine set at 24% which results in a required score of 4.8.
