    I've been watching my CPanel update log files and SpamAssassin has not updated since April 19th. The lines in the file always read the same:

    >current version is 1588424, new version is 1588424, skipping channel

    The server is set to automatic updates in WHM.

    I was told by my hosting company the program version is v3.3.1 and definitions are v3.3.2. Since 1588424 for 3.3.1 is higher than the current version for 3.3.2, SpamAssassin does not update.

    Our host also told us instances running the same version of CPanel (11.42.1.16) are doing the same thing. Is anyone else seeing this?

    Hello :)

    Yes, the output you referenced is normal during cPanel updates. If the primary question is about a new version of SpamAssassin, then yes, there are plans to update SpamAssassin to 3.4.0, but that's currently not scheduled until cPanel version 11.46.

    Thank you.

    The SpamAssassin version in CPanel is v3.3.1

    The query for an updated rules refers to v3.3.2

    My question is really this...

    Are they the same rules / definitions for both versions? The definitions were pretty much updated daily until about a month ago. Now they never update.

    You can run the following command to complete the same process that occurs during the cPanel updates:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/sa-update_wrapper
    On a test machine, I noticed the following output:

    This matches the version installed on the system at:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/spamd
    Where are you seeing that SpamAssassin 3.3.1 is installed on your system? What version of cPanel are you using?

    Thank you.

    I get:

    SpamAssassin has not updated since April 19th now... CPanel version is 11.42.1.16

    Again, I am told by my host this is not unique to my set up. The technician told me SpamAssassin is not updating because the versions are not aligned. He noticed this on several other test machines and was going to check with CPanel. Unfortunately, I noticed this on Saturday morning and the ticket died as it passed from tech to tech.

    Are you using a custom/manual installation of SpamAssassin? For instance, you should use this command to check the version:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/spamd -V
    Thank you.

    Right, notice the following output:

    This shows that SpamAssassin version 3.3.2 is included with cPanel. You may want to verify that no other versions of SpamAssassin are installed on your system.

    Thank you.

    I'm not seeing anything abnormal with that output. Could you clarify the specific issue?

    Thank you.
