    Just a quick question, why is Spamassassin installed with DNS only?

    Surely it is of no use and just hogging resources?

    SpamAssassin is installed because Exim is installed; it is integrated with our default Exim installation. The reason that Exim is installed is so that cPanel can send system notification e-mails to root or the server contact e-mail address.
