    Default Question on Spam Training and Closed Accounts

    2 queries...

    If I set an account to 'Closed' will the spam training continue to parse their incoming mail?

    Another question regarding the following commands:
    zmamavisdctl stop
    zmamavisdctl start

    We have an incredibly busy and large Zimbra install. My client is very afraid of the slightest of hiccups during business hours. Will restarting zmamavisdctl be a relatively safe procedure?

    Thanks!

    Not sure on the spam training question

    Restarting amavisd shouldn't mess anything up, except messages won't be getting delivered to your users at that moment. They'll continue to queue up and be scanned once amavis is up again. If they're really serious about uptime, you really should have two MTAs anyway

    When an account is closed, messages are bounced. It's kind of like a "soft delete" - so the MTA should reject the mail as "user unknown" so it will never hit the spam processing point.

    When you are logged in as Zimbra and do an zmamavisdctl stop/start, do a "sendmail -q" after you do a start and that will force anything in queue to process.. so if anything did come in while amavis was restarting, it will get a kick right away.
