ISPConfig 2.2.37 and ***SPAM***
Since upgrading to version 2.2.37 about a month ago it seems that the spamassassin spam filter is no longer working.

My users used to frequently receive messages marked with the ***SPAM*** heading and none of them have received one since the upgrade about a month ago.

I have not changed any of the settings since upgrading. Is there any way I can check if spamassassin is working correctly?

I tried using the GTUBE test, but when I send an e-mail with the line


It goes through just fine and does not get blocked or have the subject renamed to ***SPAM***.

Is there anything I need to do after upgrading to get spamassassin working again?

looking through the forums i saw falko recommending running this line to test spamassassin config

/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint

my output says

config: no rules were found! Do you need to run 'sa-update'?

but even after running sa-update it still give the same error

ok. i figured it out

had to run sa-update in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/

now after running

/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint

it reports no errors and spam is correctly being marked as ***SPAM***

I am curious though why running sa-update command did not work and I had to go into /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/ and run ./sa-update
