    Hello,

    Do you want to create a custom rule in your SpamAssassin?

    Edit your /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

    Using the following as a guide, add the new rule to the end of your local.cf

    Code:
    # Custom Rules - Reject over quota messages as spam
    rawbody EQOVERQUOTA    /user is over quota/i
    score     EQOVERQUOTA    99.0
    
    Don't forget to --lint your rules when done to make sure they are valid.

    I made the above rule becuase I was receiving a lot of spam pretending to be over quota messages.
