I’m running CentOS-7 on my home server, and have setup postfix + dovecot + spamassassin. Everything seems to be working fine, except that while spam is being marked as ***Spam***, it is ending up in ~/Maildir/cur/ .

(where I can examine it with sa-learn). What is the simplest way to do this?

    if header :contains “X-Spam-Flag” “YES” {
    fileinto “Spam”;

    Don’t forget to compile your sieve script. Also, if you filter on a header, you may need to double the filter (put the same thing twice) due to a old Dovecot bug that Red Hat has not yet fixed:
