Reducing SpamAssassin hits w/ Cpanel MSGID_FROM_MTA_SHORT


Could someone else with cPanel send themselves an email message and look at the header to tell me if there are two sets of "Received: from " headers?

This is activating SpamAssassin's MSGID_FROM_MTA_SHORT flag and causing some problems for me.

Also on cPanel, and yes - 2 sets of 'received from'.

Bummer.... surely there's a way to get rid of those.

Any ideas?

It adds over three hits to the SpamAssassin hits.

I tried sending myself some manual emails from within Modernbill, and they were rejected as spam by it. I'll see if I can make it do it again. Seems to be ok for ordinanry invoices etc though...

You could always just raise the trigger number in Spam Assassin to take account of this. Granted it may let a little more spam through as well though.

It's not me that I'm worried about... it's everyone else out there that uses spam assassin and other filtering software that I'm trying to avoid.

Here is the fix I found for the spam-assasin problem. It fixed the problems I had with contact forms:

PHP Code:
mail($email_to$subject$message"From: ".$your_name." <".$youremail.">"."\r\n"."Message-ID: <".md5($youremail)."@yourdomain.com>"."\n".'Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\n Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n')or die('mail not sent'); 
The Message-ID evidently is too short coming from your server, or something like that. Using md5 from your email address seems to do the trick quite nicely.

My spamassasin score went down from 5.5 to 1.3 with this little fix.
