The joy’s of spam assassin

So I’ve got email coming into my new DreamHost accounts. Ithink some is still being routed to my old host, but I’m going to be working that out in the morning (10 or so hours from now).

I’ve already begon recieving spam – and I’m very glad that I installed spam assassin as Gossip suggested. If for no other reason than this:

SPAM: Hit! (0.8 points) BODY: Uses words and phrases which indicate porn (11)
SPAM: Hit! (2.1 points) BODY: Talks about opting in
SPAM: Hit! (1.8 points) BODY: Gives an excuse for why message was sent
SPAM: Hit! (1.5 points) BODY: Asks you to click below
SPAM: Hit! (1.3 points) BODY: I wonder how many emails they sent in error…

Looks like it’s working. 🙂
