The config file for spamassassin in Lion (/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf) contains entries for configuring the shortcircuit plugin (e.g. for whitelisting sites etc.)


ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Shortcircuit
#   default: strongly-whitelisted mails are *really* whitelisted now, if the
#   shortcircuiting plugin is active, causing early exit to save CPU load.
#   Uncomment to turn this on
# shortcircuit USER_IN_WHITELIST       on
# shortcircuit USER_IN_DEF_WHITELIST   on
# shortcircuit USER_IN_ALL_SPAM_TO     on
# shortcircuit SUBJECT_IN_WHITELIST    on

#   the opposite; blacklisted mails can also save CPU
# shortcircuit USER_IN_BLACKLIST       on
# shortcircuit USER_IN_BLACKLIST_TO    on
# shortcircuit SUBJECT_IN_BLACKLIST    on

#   if you have taken the time to correctly specify your "trusted_networks",
#   this is another good way to save CPU
# shortcircuit ALL_TRUSTED             on

#   and a well-trained bayes DB can save running rules, too
# shortcircuit BAYES_99                spam
# shortcircuit BAYES_00                ham

endif # Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Shortcircuit


Is this plugin installed for Lion and is it enabled?  If not, how do I install / enable?


Thanks in advance.

    Did you ever find this answer?  I'm on the phone with Apple Care and they want $695 for a support call. We're a small company and having issues.... so $700 for a one time call is out of our budget.


    Our issues are:


    I have added domains to whitelist... they still get marked as **SPAM**.


    Spam learning is dependent on redirecting mail to the junkmail and notjunkmail accounts... which is great but we're a mixed environment. Not everyone has redirect feature.


    What I want to do...

    Get Whitelisting to work.

    Then create a server side rule to move anything marked **SPAM** to that user's junk folder.

    Next allow spamassassin to access each user's junk folder and learn from anything in there.


    if anyone knows how to do those or knows of a great how-to I don't care to read one bit. So far my search for this information is coming up short.
