Hello, I just installed a mail server with postfix, dovecot, mysql and spamassasin.

Everything works fine, but the SPAM folder does not exist and spam emails arrive the same.

I would like to create a folder of SPAM and that automatically go there the mails considered spam

regards

dovecot does not filter emails by default, it requires an external application to do that, like sieve. Once you install sieve, you can filter incoming emails based on the X-Spam-Flag header and move them to a spam folder accordingly.

there are lots of guides on how to install and setup sieve with dovecot.

Hello, thanks for answering.

I followed the steps of this tutorial but I do not know if it will be the right one. I can not make it work.

http://www.smartdomotik.com/2015/09/04/how-to-set-filters-in-roundcube-with-sieve/

Could you tell me a tutorial that works?

I have Postfix, Dovecot, Roundcube and SpamAssassinpamAssassin

Thanks

That tutorial won't help, its not related to CentOS and the commands are wrong.

I think the equivalent CentOS package for sieve is pigeonhole, so try
Code:
yum install dovecot-pigeonhole


Try this tutorial:

Sorry for not mentioning it before, but I do not have Centos. I have Ubuntu 14.04
