Overview

This module installs, configures and manages spamassassin either as a service (through spamd) or for use with applications like amavisd.

Module Description

Spamassassin has a huge array of configuration directives, this module tries to give the user access to as many of them as possible. There are a lot of class parameters and most of them have a brief description of it's function in the header of the class file. For more information see: http://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.3.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html

Setup

What spamassassin affects

  • spamassassin package.
  • spamassassin configuration files: local.cf, v310.cf, v312.cf, v320.cf and sql.cf (optional).
  • spamassassin service (optional).
  • optional packages: razor, pyzor and dkim.

Setup Requirements

On Redhat systems, if you enable razor and/or pyzor, the packages need to come from EPEL, which is not managed by this module. See https://forge.puppetlabs.com/stahnma/epel.

The installation of the DCC plugin, if enabled, needs to be handled elsewhere.

Beginning with spamassassin

Minimal usage for spamd

class { 'spamassassin':
  sa_update       => true,
  service_enabled => true,
}

Use with amavis

class { 'spamassassin':
  sa_update         => true,
  run_execs_as_user => 'amavis',
  service_enabled   => false,

Reference

Classes

Public Classes

  • spamassassin: Main class, includes all other classes.

Private Classes

  • spamassassin::params: Default values.

Parameters

The following parameters are available in the spamassassin module:

sa_update

Boolean. Enable the sa-update cron job. Default: false

run_execs_as_user

If you enabled razor and/or pyzor and would like the razor-admin or pyzor discover commands to be run as a different user specify the username in this directive. Example: amavis. Default: undef

service_enable

Boolean. Will enable service at boot and ensure a running service.

spamd_max_children

This option specifies the maximum number of children to spawn. Spamd will spawn that number of children, then sleep in the background until a child dies, wherein it will go and spawn a new child.

spamd_min_children

The minimum number of children that will be kept running The minimum value is 1, the default value is 1 in spamd, and undef here. If you have lots of free RAM, you may want to increase this.

spamd_listen_address

Tells spamd to listen on the specified IP address (defaults to 127.0.0.1). Use 0.0.0.0to listen on all interfaces. You can also use a valid hostname which will make spamd listen on the first address that name resolves to.

spamd_allowed_ips

Specify a list of authorized hosts or networks which can connect to this spamd instance. Single IP addresses, CIDR format networks, or ranges of IP addresses by listing 3 or less octets with a trailing dot. Hostnames are not supported, only IP addresses. This option can be specified multiple times, or can take a list of addresses separated by commas.

spamd_username

spamd runs as this user

spamd_groupname

spamd runs in this group

spamd_nouserconfig

Turn off (on) reading of per-user configuration files (user_prefs) from the user's home directory. The default behaviour is to read per-user configuration from the user's home directory (--user-config).

spamd_allowtell

Allow learning and forgetting (to a local Bayes database), reporting and revoking (to a remote database) by spamd. The client issues a TELL command to tell what type of message is being processed and whether local (learn/forget) or remote (report/revoke) databases should be updated.

spamd_sql_config

Turn on SQL lookups even when per-user config files have been disabled with -x this is useful for spamd hosts which don’t have user’s home directories but do want to load user preferences from an SQL database.

required_score

Set the score required before a mail is considered spam. n.nn can be an integer or a real number.

score_tests

Assign scores (the number of points for a hit) to a given test. Scores can be positive or negative real numbers or integers.

custom_rules

Define custom rules. This is a hash of hashes. The key for the outer hash is the spamassassin rule name, the inner hash for each entry should contain the rule definition, e.g:

spamassassin::custom_rules:
  INVOICE_SPAM:
    body: '/Invoice.*from.*You have received an invoice from .* To start with it, print out or download a JS copy of your invoice/'
    score: 6
    describe: 'spam reported claiming "You have received an invoice"'

whitelist_from

Used to whitelist sender addresses which send mail that is often tagged (incorrectly) as spam. This would be written to the global local.cf file

whitelist_from_rcvd

Used to whitelist the combination of a sender address and rDNS name/IP. This would be written to the global local.cf file

whitelist_to

If the given address appears as a recipient in the message headers (Resent-To, To, Cc, obvious envelope recipient, etc.) the mail will be whitelisted.

blacklist_from

Used to specify addresses which send mail that is often tagged (incorrectly) as non-spam, but which the user doesn't want.

blacklist_to

If the given address appears as a recipient in the message headers (Resent-To, To, Cc, obvious envelope recipient, etc.) the mail will be blacklisted.

rewrite_header_subject

By default, suspected spam messages will not have the Subject, From or To lines tagged to indicate spam. By setting this option, the header will be tagged with the value of the parameter to indicate that a message is spam.

rewrite_header_from

See rewrite_header_subject.

rewrite_header_to

See rewrite_header_subject.

report_safe

Values: 0,1 or 2. See: http://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.3.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html#report_safe Default: 0

clear_trusted_networks

Boolean. Empty the list of trusted networks. Default: false

trusted_networks

What networks or hosts are 'trusted' in your setup. Trusted in this case means that relay hosts on these networks are considered to not be potentially operated by spammers, open relays, or open proxies.

clear_internal_networks

Boolean. Empty the list of internal networks. Default: false

internal_networks

Internal means that relay hosts on these networks are considered to be MXes for your domain(s), or internal relays.

skip_rbl_checks

Boolean. If false SpamAssassin will run RBL checks. Default: true

dns_available

If set to 'test', SpamAssassin will query some default hosts on the internet to attempt to check if DNS is working or not. Default: yes

bayes_enabled

Boolean. Whether to use the naive-Bayesian-style classifier built into SpamAssassin. Default: true

bayes_use_hapaxes

Boolean. Should the Bayesian classifier use hapaxes (words/tokens that occur only once) when classifying? This produces significantly better hit-rates, but increases database size by about a factor of 8 to 10. Default: true

bayes_auto_learn

Boolean. Whether SpamAssassin should automatically feed high-scoring mails into its learning systems. Default: true

bayes_ignore_header

See http://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.3.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html#bayes_ignore_header

bayes_auto_expire

Boolean. If enabled, the Bayes system will try to automatically expire old tokens from the database. Default: true

bayes_sql_enabled

Boolean. If true will set bayes_store_module to use sql and will write the sql dsn, and other directives, to local.cf. Default: false

bayes_sql_dsn

This parameter gives the connect string used to connect to the SQL based Bayes storage. By default will use the mysql driver and a database called spamassassin. Please note the module does not manage any database settings or the creation of the schema.

bayes_sql_username

The sql username used for the dsn provided above.

bayes_sql_password

The sql password used for the dsn provided above.

bayes_sql_override_username

If this options is set the BayesStore::SQL module will override the set username with the value given. This could be useful for implementing global or group bayes databases.

bayes_path

This is the directory and filename for Bayes databases. Please note this parameter is not used if bayes_sql_enabled is true.

user_scores_dsn

The perl DBI DSN string used to specify the SQL server holding user config example: 'DBI:mysql:dbname:hostname

dcc_body_max

This option sets how often a message's body/fuz1/fuz2 checksum must have been reported to the DCC server before SpamAssassin will consider the DCC check as matched. As nearly all DCC clients are auto-reporting these checksums, you should set this to a relatively high value, e.g. 999999 (this is DCC's MANY count). Default: 999999

dcc_fuz1_max

See dcc_body_max. Default: 999999

dcc_fuz2_max

See dcc_body_max. Default: 999999

pyzor_timeout

How many seconds you wait for Pyzor to complete, before scanning continues without the Pyzor results. Default: 3.5

pyzor_max

This option sets how often a message's body checksum must have been reported to the Pyzor server before SpamAssassin will consider the Pyzor check as matched. Default: 5

pyzor_options

Specify additional options to the pyzor command. Please note that only characters in the range [0-9A-Za-z ,._/-] are allowed for security reasons. Please note that the module will automatically add the homedir options as part of the configuration.

pyzor_path

This option tells SpamAssassin specifically where to find the pyzor client instead of relying on SpamAssassin to find it in the current PATH.

pyzor_home

Define the homedir for pyzor. Default is to use the [global config dir]/.pyzor

razor_enabled

Boolean. Enable/disable the Pyzor plugin. Default: true

razor_timeout

How many seconds you wait for Razor to complete before you go on without the results. Default: 5

razor_home

spamcop_enabled

Boolean. Enable/disable the Pyzor plugin. Default: false

spamcop_from_address

This address is used during manual reports to SpamCop as the From: address. You can use your normal email address. If this is not set, a guess will be used as the From: address in SpamCop reports.

spamcop_to_address

Your customized SpamCop report submission address. You need to obtain this address by registering at http://www.spamcop.net/. If this is not set, SpamCop reports will go to a generic reporting address for SpamAssassin users and your reports will probably have less weight in the SpamCop system.

spamcop_max_report_size

Messages larger than this size (in kilobytes) will be truncated in report messages sent to SpamCop. The default setting is the maximum size that SpamCop will accept at the time of release. Default: 50

awl_sql_username

The sql username used for the dsn provided above.

awl_sql_password

The sql password used for the dsn provided above.

awl_sql_override_username
