Can I use Razor spam filtering with my own procmail set up?
Note: Razor is no longer supported, and has been replaced with our Junk Filter feature!

When you add the Razor filter to a mailbox, the following is added to the DreamHost-generated .procmailrc:

# filter 0 - first tag message with razor
:0 Wc
| razor-check

# filter 0
:0 Wa
.dh-spam/
So, if you want, you can actually set up razor on a mailbox without using our web interface to do it. Just add those lines into your current procmail recipes! If you're not already a procmail expert though, please just use our web panel.

However, you won't be able to use our special "unblocked spam" and "blocked non-spam" folders unless you set up your Razor filter for our web panel. The reason for this is simply our little DreamHost spam-trolling robot won't know to look in your folders for messages to report to Razor if you haven't told us through the web panel!
