[Dspam-user] DSPAM Web UI quarantine patch

ktm@rice.edu
Hi DSPAM users,

We have finished our DSPAM upgrade to 3.10.2. I noticed that the DSPAM
UI for the Quarantine has a 'Select 200' button but it is not very
useful because the available sort orders for the quarantine a by
rating - leastlike to mostlike SPAM, date - newest to to oldest, and
then from and subject alphabetically. In particular, using the reverse
order to rating and date would allow for easy pruning of the quarantine
by way of the 'Select 200' option. Please find attached the changes
needed for the file dspam.cgi to allow the sort direction to be toggled.

Regards,
Ken

Thanks for the effort, Ken.  However, you need to be aware that the
quarantine feature has been broken for some time.  There is a bug that
causes redelivery of false positives from quarantine to fail.  I for one
had to turn off quarantine and settle for spam tagging instead because
once mail was quarantined, it was unrecoverable.

Hi Phil,

We had addressed that issue already. Is there a link to the bug report?
I can see if I can hunt up our changes.

Regards,
Ken

Actually I have some patches somewhere for a few tweaks I made as well.
Let me see if I can find them, and I'll trade you my patches.

Ken,
I think I filed a bug on it but don't have it handy right now.  If you
know the problem and have a fix for it, I would LOVE to see your fix.  :)

Ken,
Sorry, I got buried with work and this slipped through the cracks.

I am unable to find my patches to the web interface.  It's possible they
were obsoleted by subsequent versions.  I'm sure I'm not the only one
who'd be glad to see your fix for the quarantine redelivery issue, if
you can find them.  All I remember about it was that it seemed to
involve UTF8 strings ending up in places that weren't actually prepared
to handle them.
