that's fine, then I reinstalled spamassassin 3.2.5 using make. now if I run
[root@bor /]# spamassassin -D < /home/temp/test.msg
then it gives (what looks to me like) a healthy response
but it is not running
I try "service spamd start" and "service spamassassin start" and both come back saying unrecognised service.
not to be beaten I run "spamd -d" in an attempt to kick start it. It is not shown as running as a service still and it is still not putting anything in the headers of any emails.
Thanks for your help so far.... got any more?
