So, with my previous service provider I got little to no spam, switched to Dreamhost and spam galore, up to 80 messages a day for almost a year now. It seems that the previous ISP did some sort of filter on the crap before it hits my mailserver, but Dreamhost does none of that. And, I can't see how spam assassin works other than a white and black list set-up, which is no good as the spam is all over the map and I can't spent four hours a day black listing this and that... I have looked through to Spamassassin settings in the webmail.domain.com interface, but to my limited (technically and in time) eye there is no way to catch a good portion of the wave of spam.
So, can anything be done about Dreamhost sucking so hard on the spam front? I mean, something I can do that is easy and works? I am considering changing providers soon as my account is about to lapse.
