 +====== Work Party 2008 Q1 ======
 +
 +Another sysadmin work party!
 +

 +Please sign up here if you want to attend.
 +
 +  * Charles Nadeau
 +  * Brenda Butler
 +
 +===== Goals: =====
 +
 +  * Make notes on how to work with postfix, spamassassin, mailman
 +  * Enable mailman to e-mail post to be moderated (Charles)
 +  * Have mailman work with spamassasin to filter out spam
 +  * Can sqledger work with apache2? - if so, can we remove apache1?
 +
 +==== Prep work: ====
 +
 +
 +==== To be done at the work party ====
 +
 +  * sql-ledger working under apache2 (and old stuff still working too)
 +     * make ssl work under apache2.  Use old certs.
 +     * To get rid of the message:
 +<code>
 +[[:Sat|Feb 23 13:17:26 2008]] [[:error]] VirtualHost *:80 -- mixing * ports and \
 +    non-* ports with a NameVirtualHost address is not supported, proceeding \
 +    with undefined results
 +</code>
 +
 +after changing the apache2 config, and running apache2ctl -t to test the config, add another VirtualNameHost directive for the extra port that you're going to listen to.  Also add :80 to the existing one(s).
 +<code>
 +VirtualNameHost *:443
 +</code>
 +
 +
 +  * Have mailman work with spamassasin to filter out spam
 +     * I used the instructions there: [[http://www.jamesh.id.au/articles/mailman-spamassassin/]]
 +     * I edited Mailman/mm_cfg.py to enable spam filtering
 +     * I trained the bayesian filter using the mailing list archives as ham.
 +     * to extract 10 messages from an mbox file called mbox-file.  Giving no args to -s means that formail will simply dump out the messages to stdout.  Otherwise it would invoke the program given as the -s arg once for each message and pass the message to it.
 +<code>
 +cat spam | formail -10 -s | mail list@blah.blah.blah
 +</code>
 +
 +We want to send spam to the mailing lists to determine if spamassassin is working or not and we thought we'd limit it to 10 at a time ... instead of sending my whole archive of 8000 messages.
 +We would probably want to adjust the above so that the message is sent using the original headers in the envelope, rather than creating a new envelope with my credentials ...
 +
 +
 +==== more stuff we learned ====
