Default Upgrade Spamassassin

Greetings!

I have a Ubuntu 9.10 Mail server up and running thanks to Falko!

It is configured for virtual users and domains. Everything seems to work fine.

I noticed over the past few days that I have been getting a more and more spam e-mails that are getting through SpamAssassin. I looked over the server and discovered I was running SA 3.2.5. The latest version I think is 3.3.14? Is there any benefits to upgrading SpamAssassin? If so... Can someone post an easy upgrade HowTo? Sorry.... n00b here.

Thanks

Try to update it with
Code:
aptitude install spamassassin
If there's a newer version, it will be installed.

Thank You Falko!


I tried your suggestion.

Looks like there isn't an update yet in Ubuntu's repositories.

Nothing was upgraded.

Thanks again!

You could try to manually install the latest SpamAssassin version, but I wouldn't do it - I'd wait for an update from the Ubuntu repositories.
Do you have the sa-update dron job in your crontab to download the latest SpamAssassin rules?

I was thinking about that but decided not to probably for the same reasons.

I'll wait for it to come through the repositories.

Yes, I have a CRON job. I followed your "How to" and everything is working great. I just have been getting a lot of SPAM from a ".ru" domain all of a sudden.

I had set up the same system, falko in his tutorial described, but after a few sa-updates i did not see any results.

After a few hours of digging, I found out, that all sa updates went to the root home directory, just for root himself and the system did not even know about that.

I had to add these lines to the /etc/spamassassin/local.cf
<pre>
bayes_path path_to_your_spamassassin_db
bayes_file_mode 0777
</pre>

Maybe it will help.

I will try adding those lines to the file.

I'm getting hammered by .RU addresses.....
