SpamAssassin on CentOS misconfigured, help

Posted by Tertsi, 01-03-2008, 07:22 AM
The problem I currently have is that all e-mails tagged by SpamAssassin as spam are deleted even though they are supposed to be moved to a different "probably-spam" file. In addition, I'd like to use the spamc + spamd configuration and I'm not using it now. I tested that procmail is installed on my CentOS 5 server that's also using sendmail. yum remove spamassassin // In case it is pre-installed. It was the last time I did this. // Download it at spamassassin.apache.org: wget http://mirror.eunet.fi/apache/spamas...n-3.2.3.tar.gz tar xvfz Mail-SpamAssassin-3.2.3.tar.gz cd /Mail-SpamAssassin-3.2.3 perl build/check_dependencies // Checks which perl module dependencies are missing that need to be installed before proceeding. Then install them perl Makefile.PL make make install Upload your own spamassassin/local.conf to /etc/mail/spamassassin Make /home/tero world executable (chmod 751) Upload.procmail to /home/tero // My e-mail user's name. I figured that this might be a permissions problem but what I can do without risking security?
