    commend out in /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre:
    loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::AWL

    so change it to:
    #loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::AWL

    But why would you do that?

    because we get weird results, like the following:

    14 AWL AWL: From: address is in the auto white-list

    14 points (5 is spam!) for white listing? thats more like auto black listing...

    did you remove the autowithlist files?
    Maybe is the database corrupt.
    you find them:

    /home/*user*/.spamassassin/auto-whitelist

    Then you start with a clean database for that user...

    No i try to say that a solution can be to remove that files. spamassassin will automaticly make new clean files. So you start with a fresh database if you remove them. ;)

    You easally can remove all files with:
    rm -f /home/*/.spamassassin/auto-whitelist

    EDIT: Ther is something wrong in the forum... I repleyed on:
    But my post is newer :s

    no i haven't touched any files, and my users don't have access to the server in order to mess with the home directory files.

    i've disabled AWL and i'll see how that goes, maybe in the future i'll re-enable it.
