Spamassassin plugin FreeMail add email addresses in header of emails

Aug 28, 2019
Hi Everybody

I have a issue with Spamassassin plugin FreeMail.

The problem is that the this plugin add mail addresses from free emails providers in header of email.

For exsample:

- user aaa write mail to from
- user bbb write mail to from

in the header of the mail to is:

FREEMAIL_FROM 0.001 Sender email is commonly abused enduser mail provider (aaa[at] (bbb[at]

I think that this is from privacy perspective a very bad behavior and it should be disabled by default.

But I don't know, how I can do that.

I looked into the file "" but there is no way to disable this and it's obviously not the right place ("# Please don't modify this file ...") to do configuration changes.

Can someone help me with this issue?
