lots of spam on my opensuse.org address

Description

Hi,

the spam filter (or rather, lack thereof) on mx1.suse.de and mx2.suse.de which
handle mail to opensuse.org addresses has become truly annoying... about 80%
of the spam that I get here is hitting my opensuse.org address. And since the
junk has already passed through a (poorly configured?) spamassassin, my local
spamassassin thinks all is legit o.0

Can someone do something about this?

Cheers
Mathias

I wonder what would happen if spammers added spamassassin headers with Score 0.0 - I guess, you want to filter those out on your side anyway.
You probably also need to teach it that the actual delivering IP is the one before mx*.suse.de - for DNSBLs queried by spamassassin

They are usually removed by spamassassin before processing. Might be configurable.

...so, is anyone actually doing anything about it?

related: is the email address "postmaster@suse.de" actually being read
by a human being?

See my previous reply. Spamassassin does not rely on any existing results, and deletes any pre-existing X-Spam headers.

...so, is anyone actually doing anything about it?

In all honesty, probably not.

Half a year later:

spamcop by now treats the suse domain as "no human beings there", mails to
"postmaster@suse.de" are not read by anyone, and my opensuse.org address is by
now "responsible" for over 90% of the spam mails I get.

PLEASE fix.

I think both of these issues are a matter for SUSE, not really openSUSE:

  • who receives "postmaster@suse.de" and how it is dealt with
  • fine-tuning the SpamAssassin setup on mx[12].suse.de
