Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

[solved] Logcheck sending emails everywhere

I just recently installed logcheck running it at defaults. I don't have a /home/logcheck, even though the logcheck.conf MAILTO variable says "logcheck". Now I have a .forward in my regular home /home/awayand which gets an hourly report from logcheck but I have no clue how to turn that off. I don't want logcheck to use my /home/awayand/.forward file! Anyone know how I can troubleshoot where this configuration comes from?

Edit: turns out /etc/aliases had logcheck: root entry and root: awayand

Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::PhishTag(3) 		User Contributed Perl Documentation		   Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::PhishTag(3)

PhishTag - SpamAssassin plugin for redirecting links in incoming emails.
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::PhishTag trigger_ratio 0.1 trigger_target RULE_NAME
PhishTag enables administrators to rewrite links in emails that trigger certain tests, preferably anti-phishing blacklist tests. The plugin will inhibit the blocking of a portion of the emails that trigger the test by SpamAssassin, and let them pass to the users' inbox after the rewrite. It is useful in providing training to email users about company policies and general email usage.
The following options can be set by modifying the configuration file. o trigger_ratio percentage_value Sets the probability in percentage that a positive test will trigger the email rewrite, e.g. 0.1 will rewrite on the average 1 in 1000 emails that match the trigger. o trigger_target RULE_NAME http_url The name of the test which would trigger the email rewrite; all the URLs will be replaced by http_url.
The source of this plugin is avaliable at: a sample configuration file is also available:
