Default virtual users... postfix (fedora 8)

Ok I'm working with this setup since the fedora 5 version. Also did the debian etch one, and the "full mail solution" also for debian etch. Combined lots of ideas from your tutotials and stuff. But with fedora 9 it just dont seam to work the spamassassin part.

To make it simple, I'm running the fedora 8 setup with fedora 9 but no virtual setup, wich makes it even simplier. I did it with debian etch and its working like a charm.

The problem seams to be amavisd-new not using spamassassin, but I cannot be sure of this. All I know are the facts

- No X-spam header, ever! even setting $sa_tag_level_deflt = undef; or $sa_tag_level_deflt = 0.1; in /etc/amavisd/amavisd.conf and restarting everything.
- changing this setting, works: $final_spam_destiny = D_PASS;
- virus checking with clamav works
- I use spamassassin directly in debug mode and the output to the screen SHOW HEADERS
spamassassin -D < /usr/share/doc/spamassassin-3.2.5/sample-spam.txt

[4636] dbg: check: is spam? score=1005.333 required=5
X-Spam-Flag: YES
X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.2.5 (2008-06-10) on fedora.eden.blog.br
X-Spam-Level: **************************************************
X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=1005.3 required=5.0 tests=DIGEST_MULTIPLE,GTUBE,
However , if I use the mail system, in the command line or using a graphical mail client, it appears that spamassassin is not checked and it shows no headers:
Mail -s "test of spam message" $USER < /usr/share/doc/spamassassin-3.2.5/sample-spam.txt
it is detected as spam in the log, I check the mail and there it is with no x-spam headers.

This is the GTUBE, the
        Test for

If your spam filter supports it, the GTUBE provides a test by which you
can verify that the filter is installed correctly and is detecting incoming
spam. You can send yourself a test mail containing the following string of
characters (in upper case and with no white spaces and line breaks):


You should send this test mail from an account outside of your network.
So I'd like to know if falko tested this nice howto in fedora 9. maybe having the same issue cause no fedora 9 version howto around yet? you guys know any more tests I could do? again, In debian etch, I set $sa_tag_level_deflt = undef and all messages are tagged.
