Evolution spam plugin (bogofilter, spamassassin or both?)


I’ve read that evolution has plugins for bogofilter and spamassassin to deal with junk/spam messages. Is one better than the other? Can I install the evolution plugins on my machine and assume they will work out of the box, or do I need to do configuration afterward? How does evolution decide what gets marked as junk/spam without these plugins installed and configured?



  1. Depends on how much work you want to spend training filters, see the Evolution documentation. 2) See the Evolution documentation. 3) It does not.

it’s not accurate. What evo does with respect of junk filtering can be
found at Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences->Junk. When you’ve
installed either the Bogofilter or the Spamassassin (or both) plugins,
the options for the chosen plugin will be shown there as well.
