    Message from my server admin:
    Part of the autoupdate installed Spamassassin 3.0 which was just released this week. I'm
    not sure what it has done specificially but something in the cooperation between exim,
    MailScanner and Spamassassin broke and this prevents mails from being processed and
    delivered.

    In order to get mail flowing I've modified your MailScanner configuration to *not* use
    SpamAssassin for the time being, and it seems mail is being processed now.

    Anyone else notice problems?

    Go on, have a guess
    Your server admin should look a little deeper and do some work to investigate the issue more.

    It's not rocket science and I'm not going to post all the possible permutations, but if they do the following they can then start fixing the problems:

    spamassassin --lint -c /usr/mailscanner/etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf

    That path is dependant on where the prefs file is located. Not everyone has spam.assassin.prefs.conf installed in the above directory.

    For what it's worth, cPanel did not update to SA3, CentOS 3.3 upgraded spamassassin to SA3.

    # cat /etc/redhat-release
    Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
    # /usr/bin/spamassassin -V
    SpamAssassin version 3.0.0
    running on Perl version 5.8.1

    It would appear not to be just restricted to Centos, /scripts/rpmup will install version 3.0.0 at least on Redhat 9 too.

    It is a set of perl modules. It has to do with cpan and your cpan source.

    cPanel had nothing to do with the update, it was caused by CPAN updating.
    We are currently working on a patch to fix this error.

    SA 3.0 does not rewrite subjects with cPanel - will this be fixed too?

    We had this problem also - fixed the SpamAssassin config till there were no errors and it still would not allow mail through. The problem is with MailScanner - just update to the latest version (it likes SA 3.0) and make sure your MailScanner.conf file is updated and it will start working.

    Anyone know how I can get subject rewriting to work again? Before it was adding **SPAM** to the subject but now its not.

    Thanks

    Just have a search of the recent spamassassin threads, the solution has been posted.

    change required_hits to required_score
    change your rewrite to rewrite_header Subject ****SPAM(_SCORE_)****
