Hi Till
I am not getting X-Spam headers and spam is ot being filtered.
Spamassassin is on in ISPConfig.
You mentioned that the path is -
My install is not in that path but is this one -
Would that be why my Spamassassin is not working? If so, how do I fix it?
If not, any suggestions as to what to check?
One other thing. I am a bit confused as to whether a Spamassassin daemon should be running?? I get the impression it shouldn't be and that Spamassassin is called when an email arrives and needs to be scanned. Is that right?

Please open the file /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/spamassassin.rc.master and change the path to spamassassin from /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin to /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/local/bin/spamassassin

Then edit your mailuser in ISPConfig (eg. change the quota valuse) and hit save so ISPConfig rewrites the user configuration with the new spamassassin.rc file. Then test if Spamassassin works now for you.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Hi Till

Your solution was the correct one (as usual).
I am not sure why my Spamassassin path was differerent as I just followed the Perfect Install, however it all works now, so its all good.
Thanks for your help.
