[Dovecot] mail_plugins = antispam (was Re: (no subject))

Hi all,

Actually the antispam plugin for dovecot provides (re)training functionality 
initiated by moving a message to/from Spam folder. It was originally 
developed for DSPAM filtering but I assume is now more general.
Personally I stopped using DSPAM and other content-based filters some time 
ago (in favor of more thorough postfix checks + DNSBL), but when I used it, 
the plugin worked just fine =)

Best wishes

Sure I'll comment :)   all antispam tasks are best left to the MTA or
its associated software (amavisd, mailscanner, etc), that's part of its
job - not a receivers, like pop3/imap...
