Oh yes, you're using FC5.
What is within the file /etc/rc.d/init.d/spamassassin ?
Is there something like:
# Defaults - don't touch, edit /etc/default/spamassassi
I use Debian, and as the referer line says, i have to enable spamassassin within the file /etc/default/spamassassin so i did.
Maybe the file /etc/default/spamassassin is only for Debian and you have to edit a different file.
If you give the command net stat -tap, is spamd
