    Spamassasin was updated automatically to the latest verion 3.2.1 a few nights ago when
    the cron /scripts/upcp ran. In a daily report I receive via email about the
    results of the /scripts/upcp it said the following comments in regards to
    spamd:

    Should I install these modules?




    NOTE: the optional Mail:SPF module is not installed.

    Used to check DNS Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records to fight email
    address forgery and make it easier to identify spams. (This is preferred
    over Mail::SPF::Query.)


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Mail:SPF:Query module is not installed.

    Used to check DNS Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records to fight email
    address forgery and make it easier to identify spams. (Mail::SPF is
    preferred instead of this module.)


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional IP:Country module is not installed.

    Used by the RelayCountry plugin (not enabled by default) to determine
    the domain country codes of each relay in the path of an email.

    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Razor2 (version 2.61) module is not installed.

    Used to check message signatures against Vipul's Razor collaborative
    filtering network. Razor has a large number of dependencies on CPAN
    modules. Feel free to skip installing it, if this makes you nervous;
    SpamAssassin will still work well without it.

    More info on installing and using Razor can be found
    at http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/InstallingRazor .


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Net:Ident module is not installed.

    If you plan to use the --auth-ident option to spamd, you will need
    to install this module.


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional IO :: Socket:INET6 module is not installed.

    This is required if the first nameserver listed in your IP
    configuration or /etc/resolv.conf file is available only via
    an IPv6 address.


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Mail: DomainKeys module is not installed.

    If this module is installed, and you enable the DomainKeys plugin,
    SpamAssassin will perform Domain Key lookups when Domain Key
    information is present in the message headers. (Note that new versions
    of Mail:: DKIM render this module superfluous.)


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Mail: DKIM module is not installed.

    If this module is installed, and you enable the DKIM plugin,
    SpamAssassin will perform DKIM lookups when a DKIM-Signature
    header is present in the message headers. (New versions of this module
    support both Domain Keys and DKIM, rendering Mail:: DomainKeys obsolete.)


    ***************************************************************************
    NOTE: the optional Encode: Detect module is not installed.

    If you plan to use the normalize_charset config setting to detect
    charsets and convert them into Unicode, you will need to install
    this module.

    You can if you like, they are however optional. You might see a bit stronger (on spam) spamassasin if you do though.

    If you aren't having a problem with spam, I wouldn't bother as you will be trading more memory usage.
