Spamassassin blacklisting

in hestiaCP Configure Server: SPAMASSASSIN I edited the spamassassin config file /etc/spamassassin/

#   the opposite; blacklisted mails can also save CPU
shortcircuit USER_IN_BLACKLIST       on      (I removed the '#')
# shortcircuit USER_IN_BLACKLIST_TO    on
# shortcircuit SUBJECT_IN_BLACKLIST    on

blacklist_from *              (I added this line)

yet my test message From [email protected] was delivered :frowning:

Am I doing something wrong?

Use exim to block specified tld’s, domains or email addresses with custom blacklists. Have a look here:

Thanks. giving it a whirl…

I’ve added

but there is a pre-existing empty
/etc/exim4/spam-blocks.conf and
about which I find very little info (so I guess 2 more empty files in that dir are ok), as if this is an underdeveloped feature
