That should work via GUI: 'Configuration'->'Spam Detector'->'Quarantine'->'Report Style'->'User Spamreport Style'-> select No Reports

I hope this helps!
 
HI

I cannot view this option in my server (Mail Gateway 6.1-3)

Regards

yes, it is there: 'User Spamreport Style'
 
Oh... YES !!

Sorry.

One another question. My server is not sending spam reports every day. Where can I Double check it ?
 
it only sends span reports when there were spams delivered to the quarantine on the day before
 
Hi,

I had the same issue and did set GUI > Configuration > Spam Detector > Quarantine > User Spamreport Style to "No Reports" yesterday, but I still did get a spam report tonight at 0:05.

The output of "systemctl cat pmgspamreport.timer" is

Code:
# /lib/systemd/system/pmgspamreport.timer
[Unit]
Description=Send Daily Spam Report Mails

[Timer]
OnCalendar=00:05
Persistent=true

[Install]
WantedBy=timers.target

Any idea why the setting in the GUI does not work?

* could you please post the journal around that time?
* additionally could you please post your /etc/pmg/pmg.conf (at least the `spamquar` section) - anonymize anything you consider sensitive)
 
Hi Stoiko,

sure: here is the journal:

Code:

And my complete /etc/pmg/pmg.conf (server names etc. renamed):

Code:
section: admin
        dkim_selector DKIM2
        dkim_sign 0
        dkim_sign_all_mail 0
        email me@my-mail.com

section: mail
        banner my.server.com
        relay <some ip address>
        relaynomx 1
        smarthost <my tmp smarthost>
        smarthostport 25
        spf 0

section: spamquar
        reportstyle none

I would be happy about any suggestion!

Thanks a lot in advance!

if the mails were sent out by the spamreport.service you would see the postfix invocations actually sending them out between the 2 lines?

I'd check the headers of those mails - maybe it's a misconfiguration somewhere else?
 
Hi Stoiko,

here is an example header from yesterday:

Code:

This is a multi-part message in MIME format...

------------=_1655762702-2701-2
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Disposition: inline
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
 
here is an example header from yesterday:
Subject: Daily Spam Report for '<me@mydomain.com>' - 2022-06-20
the mail is from Monday - early in the morning?

maybe there's a delivery issue and it's been queued on PMG?

check the complete journal of PMG as said - if the mails are sent out by the spamreport timer you'd see the postfix entries between the 2 lines:
Jun 22 00:05:00 mypmg systemd[1]: Starting Send Daily Spam Report Mails...
....here are the postfix lines
Jun 22 00:05:02 mypmg systemd[1]: Finished Send Daily Spam Report Mails.

I hope this helps!
