    Hey everyone.

    I am having some issues with SpamAssassin. I have my own VPS which has a WHM/CPanel Installation that I use to manage a handful of domains.

    When I try to enable SpamAssassin in CPanel, I get the following message:

    Code:
    config: no rules were found!  Do you need to run 'sa-update'? at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/bin/spamassassin line 407.
    Most online sources advise that I run sa-update from the command line. This is what I get:

    Code:
    root@ruan [~]# sa-update
    -bash: sa-update: command not found
    So then I tried:

    Code:
    root@ruan [~]# /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/bin/sa-update
    channel: no 'mirrors.updates.spamassassin.org' record found, channel failed
    I am now kind of at my wits end. The domains on this server are almost all receiving massive volumes of spam, so I really want it activated.

    Does anybody have any advice for me?

    Thanks,

    Ruan

    Hello :)

    Please review the following file on your system:

    /etc/resolv.conf

    You may need to remove your existing resolvers if they are not working and use public resolvers such as 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

    Thank you.

    Thanks cPanelMichael. I did as you suggested, and the contents of my resolv.conf file now look like this:

    Code:
    nameserver 8.8.8.8
    nameserver 8.8.4.4
    There is no error message when I run the below anymore:

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/bin/sa-update

    But now, when I try to enable SpamAssassin in the cPanel, I get the following:

    Code:
    Nov 14 18:31:13.398 [3002] warn: config: created user preferences file: /home/cobalt/.spamassassin/user_prefs
