K9 + Poptray Spam rules not working

Post by billpom » Tue Oct 23, 2007 3:11 pm

Dave,
I have been a K9 user since its inception and a PopTray user for the last year or so. All of my email accounts flow through K9. For an attglobal account, attglobal identifies potential spam with <<POTENTIAL SPAM>> in the subject line. I have a Poptray rule which then deletes from server any message with this in the subject line. This rule woks fine. However for all other accounts, I have setup rules for K9 detected spam, but none of them work! The account is polled correctly, I see the email flow through K9, and it appears in Poptray, but the spam marker that K9 applies does not appear in the Subject line in Poptray, however the marker does appear in my inbox email. It seems like Poptray is "seeing" the email before K9 and therfore the subject line is not modified. The accounts in Poptray are setup for 127.0.0.1 and port 9999 as well as the correct login credentials.
The actual rules are:
AREA -> Subject
Compare -> Wildcard
Text -> [Spam][100*]
Area -> Subject
Compare -> Wildcard
Text -> {Spam][9*]
Area -> Subject
Comapre -> Contains
Text -> [DNSBL]
Actions: Delete from server
Log Rule

The rule is enabled.

Any ideas?

Make sure ANY is checked, not ALL.

In each line, the asterik should be the last character in the TEXT AREA.
As in -> [Spam][100* or -> [Spam][9*

Your LOGIN should contain the server name and port number in there.
As in -> mail.attglobal.com/110/billpom or mail.attglobal.com/110/billpom.attglobal.com

Is there anything else in the path of the email data between PopTray, K9 and the mail server?

I removed the trailing right bracket. "Any Row" was selected. Norton Anti Virus scans all email

Be careful about this bracket too:

Area -> Subject
Compare -> Wildcard
Text -> {Spam][9*]

This may be a Vista/Norton problem. If I setup Poptray/K9 in Virtual PC 2007 running XP Pro then everything works as it should. In Vista, prior to replacing avast with Norton, Poptray/K9 and Vista ran fine. Replaced avast with Norton and the Rules in Poptray stopped working.
