recently installed spamassassin. Am running spamd as root and have
configured it to work with postfix. I regularly put all the missed spam
into a folder and run sa-learn on it. Only thing is, it doesnt seem to be
learning. I have fed it over 500 mails so far - but
still no learning. I am running sa-learn as root. Do i need to run it as
any specific user? I have setup a separate user for postfix to call spamc
as. Any clues?
I am facing same problem with DSPAM.
I have qmail with vpopmail and using mysql_drv as storage backend.
created a spam and notspam account for a domain.
any suggestions ?

I dont care. That's not going to get me a pat on the back for my security
consciousness, but I still trust meebo. If you do not, then good enough, but
some people just might go for it. Its the degree of security and trust that

I've been searching for a Net Telephony solution today and realized
that none of the providers (atleast from the ones I found) provide a
non-windows dialer. MTNL seemed to come closest with a browser based
dialer seems to be IE specific; it doesn't work on Firefox and
I also tried running all dialers (VSNL, MTNL, WorldPhone) with wine
but with no success. I couldn't get past much of the VB runtime crap
(esp. MS Forms 2.0) inspite of installing the runtime and manually
downloading and registering individual dlls.
Does anyone around here know of a cheap net telephony solution which
can work on my linux system?

I have 2 hard drives installed and I have WinXP, Slackware,FC3 on hda1 and
Ubuntu,Kanotix on hdb
Recently Windows XP started giving some errors. For e.g whenever an
application(Excel,firefox etc) was opened I got a popup message
"Windows-Corrupt file C/WINDOWS/prefetch/xxxx.pf is corrupt and unreadable
please run chkdsk"
The application then would continue to run without any problems. Especially
firefox always gave errors and all the files in profiles/mozilla went
corrupt. I could not access my bookmarks and history.
When I attempted to do chkdsk It complained that the File System is RAW and
chkdsk does not support such filesystem.
I tried to repair this XP installation by booting from the XP CD. Here also
setup complained that C: is corrupt and cannot be repaired.
So I tried to install XP again. Here when I select the option to install
setup automatically selects my D drive (extended partition) and when I
change it to C and select delete and proceed to install new it does not ask
for any formatting option and gives the same error above.
Now after all this exercise my Grub menu has been wiped off and now when I
start my computer I get 2 options
1. Win XP professional
2. Win XP professional Setup.
When I boot into Windows my display has become 640x480 and this cannot be

Need someone from the outside (remote location) to access a *nix machine here.
MTNL Triband (no static IP assigned to me.). Using Dlink DSL 502 router.
LAN IP being 192.168.1.1. WAN IP is what the outsider would use to get in.
Connected to Netgear Router. (WAN IP = 192.168.1.2, LAN IP = 192.168.0.1).
Machines are connected to this netgear router as 192.168.0.X)
Earlier when I had Tataindicom broadband with a static IP, the only configuration
was required at the netgear router level where i did port forwarding of the
service to the desired machine.
The TATA router had a different interface and a bridge was enabled there.
I do not see a similar option here with mtnl.
I tried to allow under advanced--filters, inbound access to the router IP
(192.168.1.2) since this is the one connected to the mtnl dsl router.
It says ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by host.
Telneting to same IP gets me to the mtnl router (linux box) with no
Is it possible to ssh to any machine of mine with the current setup?
