I have a problem where all email sent from IMP 4.1 from outside my network
is marked as spam.
I just tried it with a user on SBC DSL. She logged into our Horde/IMP
server and sent me a message and it was marked as spam.
X-Spam-Status: Yes, hits=8.967 tag=-100 tag2=6 kill=6 tests=[AWL=0.095,
BAYES_00=-2.599, HELO_DYNAMIC_DHCP=1.248, HELO_DYNAMIC_HCC=3.741,
HELO_DYNAMIC_IPADDR=4.4, NO_REAL_NAME=0.007, RCVD_IN_NJABL_DUL=0.088,
I then had her goto her Yahoo! email account and send me the same message
and it came through:
X-Spam-Status: No, hits=1.797 tagged_above=-100 required=6
BAYES_00=-2.599, DNS_FROM_RFC_POST=1.614, FORGED_YAHOO_RCVD=2.7,
I am using amavisd-new-2.3.1 with SpamAssassin 3.03. If a user sends the
email from on our network through IMP, it works fine.
I have no idea why this is happening or how to stop it. Is there anyway to
"whitelist" my IMP server so it always works? Or some other solution?

Given those hits, it looks to me like the IMP webmail server is putting
her connecting address for HTTP into Received: headers in a format that
causes them to be interpreted by SpamAssassin as if it were mail
emanating directly from her IP to the webserver. If her computer on
SBC DSL were sending mail directly to a mailserver, from a DUL-listed
address, with a HELLO as a dynamic IP address, that would be very
This seems like mostly an SA bug to me.
