What is Rspamd?

Install Custom Spam Filter with Rspamd
Moving ahead, let us see how our Support Techs proceed with the installation.
Generally, we can find the custom spam filtering rule files in the local.d folder inside the main rspamd folder.
In order to navigate to the local.d folder, we use the following command:
Then we proceed to download the custom spam filtering rule files from Github into the local.d folder using the following command:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mailbaby/rspamd-rules/main/local.d/fuzzy_check.conf && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mailbaby/rspamd-rules/main/local.d/fuzzy_group.conf && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mailbaby/rspamd-rules/main/local.d/multimap.conf && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mailbaby/rspamd-rules/main/local.d/rbl.conf && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mailbaby/rspamd-rules/main/local.d/rbl_group.conf
Once done, we rebuild Rspamd and the Exim configuration file using the following commands:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild ./build rspamd ./build exim_conf
Then we log in to the DirectAdmin dashboard and select the Rspamd Spam Filtering System icon under Admin Tools.
Once the Rspamd dashboard loads, we can now see Mailbaby listed under the Fuzzy Hashes section.
We can also adjust the scores we apply to each custom spam filtering rule we have just installed. To do so, we need to select Symbols from the toolbar and search for Mailbaby under the Symbols and Rules.
In addition, we can adjust the score we apply to each Interserver RBL in the Symbols dashboard > Interserver > Symbols and Rules.
By performing these steps we successfully add custom spam filtering rules to Rspamd to enable better spam email filtering and/or reduce false-positive rates.
