I have a lot of forwarding within my domains (that is, I may be mariano@, absatz@, mariano.absatz@ and baby@, however, all of them point to one of them, say baby@).
I noticed that some flagrant spam was gladly passing thru and not beeing quarantined although I have the settings so that spam is quarantined at a 4 score in the actual mailbox... I read http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Junk_Mail#How_Junk_Mail_works_on_primary_addresses_and_forwards and it says that all forwarding addresses (that don't also get forwarded outside) inherit the actual mailbox spam settings...
After closer examination I noticed this:
I had forwarding set as:
So this is something like
firstname.lastname@example.org (actual mailbox)
[color=#00CC00](don't you love ASCII art?)[/color]
[color=#CC0000](don't you hate that the [pre ] pseudo-tags don't display in monospace font? what is its purpose, then?)[/color] :@
Now, back to the point, wenever I got a mail to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, it got the right junk filter settings (tagged_above=-999 required=4), but messages to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (2 forwardings away from the actual mailbox) got the default (wrong) junk filter settings (tagged_above=-999 required=999).
Is this a bug? or a feature?
