    Hi,

    How can I check is spam software is working?
    Because since a few days i'll get things like:

    "Registreer bij King Spin Club en geniet van een eersteklas behandeling

    Regards, Patrick.

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

    There are no errors.

    But how do I know if spamassin is working?

    Does
    Code:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint
    return any errors?

    Also, can you try to update your SpamAssassin rules by running
    Code:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update --no-gpg
    ?

    I did a sa-update and when running:

    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint

    I get:

    Subroutine IO::Socket::INET6::AF_INET6 redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm line 65.
    at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/IO/Socket/INET6.pm line 16
    Subroutine Net::DNS::Resolver::Base::AF_INET6 redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm line 65.
    at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Net/DNS/Resolver/Base.pm line 66


    But is there a way to test this?
    Can I send a fake spam message?

    You can check if your spam assassin working if in incoming messages header is 'x-spam' section with no error, if is not there you spamassasin dont work. Easy can be checked.

    what if the two commands given above by falko don't return anything and I can't see any x-spam headers?

    I've got the same problem since I upgraded to the latest 2.2.40.
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint
    return nothing

    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update --no-gpg
    seem to run successfully (no error messages).

    I found no error messages in /var/log/mail related to spamassassin.

    Anyone have any clue what might go wrong?

    This is a good thing, it means there are no errors with your SpamAssassin configuration. :)

    just a quick question: is that path still valid for ispcfg 3.0.4.4?

    No, ISPConfig 3 uses the system's Spamassassin, so the path is probably something like

    /usr/bin/sa-update

    or

    /usr/sbin/sa-update
