    Recently my host updated to a new cpanel build,
    and my multidrop mailbox capability has broken when spamassassin is enabled.

    What happens is the Envelope To: becomes the default catchall email address instead of the original To: address, and the Return To: address becomes the server instead of the original sender.

    This worked properly before this latest update.

    If I disable SpamAssassin, then things work the way they should.

    Is there some way to change this back to the way it worked before, so that SpamAssassin is useable?

    I've done a little more research on this.

    With the update to the cpanel software 7.4.2 it's broken the email system when Spam Assassin is enabled.

    If you look at the email headers now you'll see something funny happening:



    Without Spam Assassin enabled:

    Return-path: <sender@domain1.com>
    Envelope-to: receiver@domain2.com



    With Spam Assassin enabled:

    Return-path: <domain2@cpanel06.gzo.com>
    Envelope-to: postmaster@domain2.com
    Delivery-date: Mon, 15 Sep 2003 00:00:08 -0700


    X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 2.55 (1.174.2.19-2003-05-19-exp)



    So what's happening now is that any mail sent to the domain that's picked up by the default account has the Envelope-to address changed to be the default account instead of the original receiver account.

    This breaks the internal email server mail distribution for several of my customers, as it no longer knows who to distribute the message to after it picks up mail from the server.


    This used to work properly until cpanel was updated. This appears to either be a bug, or some setting has to be changed.

    Anyone have any ideas on this one?

    Anyone with any ideas... spamassassin is still breaking the email system by changing the envelope-to header and the return-to headers to the default account and server.

    sorry to me2 this - but isn't there a fix yet ?

    AFAICT the problem is with the exim transport / router for piping the mail thru' spamc/spamd.

    Exim gets the mail twice - once via SMTP and then again after SA via batched SMTP.

    I guess that the final recipient / mailbox is decided on the 1st delivery (and the Envelope-to: is written then) - and then over-written on the 2nd bstmp delivery.

    So either the SA filter is at the wrong point in the chain, or Exim needs telling NOT to do envelope_to_add for the 2nd delivery.
    (which is why we're seeing the final recip. in the Envelope-to: instead of the original SMTP envelope from the 1st delivery).

    Just some clues ...
    (I'm just an end-user / reseller who needs it fixed - so can't see what cpanel is doing with the exim conf files)
