Most email is retrieved with fetchmail from various external mailboxes. Thus, features like rejecting mail or greylisting makes no sense, because the mail has already been accepted elsewhere. How can I disable them? Basically I want to configure rspamd to only add headers and never reject any email. The headers are needed to move spam to the junk folder with a sieve script.

Try the following: create or edit


reject = 99;           # Reject when reaching this score
greylist = 98;         # Apply greylisting when reaching this score
add_header = 5.1;      # Add header when reaching this score
rewrite_subject = 5.2; # in case you want this
subject = "[SPAM] %s"; # ...

Then restart rspamd.

Watch your logs and check the spam scores. I've seen mails with 50 points but so far none over 90.

Best regards
