    Why does this happen?

    Why waste processor time scanning a message which is going into the /dev/null ???

    Is there a way to stop wasting CPU tie like this as it's having a major impact on my server.

    Cheers

    Sorry to bump this but there are a couple of concerns about the way Spamassassin is integrated into exim with Cpanel - this being one, and nobody seems able to give a satisfactory answer.
