    integrating amavisd-new Into Postfix For Spam- And Virus-Scanning

    falko thanks for this howto

    at the end of the howto you say that:

    'if you like you can now add Razor, Pyzor, and DCC to SpamAssassin to improve its filtering performance. Razor, Pyzor and DCC are spamfilters that use a collaborative filtering network. "

    dcc clint is no longer available in debian.
    but iI couLD still install razor and pyzor?

    the howto is working fine but I do notice that when I start and shutdown my
    server it does say something about spamassassin not being configured in /etc/default/spamassassin
    since amavisd is taking care of this I suppose it does not matter?

    You can install DCC as follows:
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc-dccproc.tar.Z
    tar xzvf dcc-dccproc.tar.Z
    cd dcc-dccproc-1.3.102
    ./configure --with-uid=amavis
    make install
    chown -R amavis:amavis /var/dcc
    ln -s /var/dcc/libexec/dccifd /usr/local/bin/dccifd
    In /etc/spamassassin/v310.pre you must enable the following line:
    loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DCC
    What's in /etc/default/spamassassin?

    here is /etc/default/spamassassin

    as requested here is the file
    it says on boot and shutdown:

    spamassassain mail filter daemon disabled see /etc/default/spamassassin

    (i made a mistake in my first post I said 'not configured' i ment 'disabled' I think I need to change
    ENABLED=0 to ENABLED=1 ?)

    # /etc/default/spamassassin
    # Duncan Findlay

    # WARNING: please read README.spamd before using.
    # There may be security risks.

    # Change to one to enable spamd

    # Options
    # See man spamd for possible options. The -d option is automatically added.

    # SpamAssassin uses a preforking model, so be careful! You need to
    # make sure --max-children is not set to anything higher than 5,
    # unless you know what you're doing.

    OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children 5 --helper-home-dir"

    # Pid file
    # Where should spamd write its PID to file? If you use the -u or
    # --username option above, this needs to be writable by that user.
    # Otherwise, the init script will not be able to shut spamd down.

    # Set nice level of spamd
    #NICE="--nicelevel 15"

    # Cronjob
    # Set to anything but 0 to enable the cron job to automatically update
    # spamassassin's rules on a nightly basis

    Yes, you can change it to ENABLED=1 (although I'm not quite sure now if amavisd connects to spamd or uses the spamassassin program).

    re spamassassin

    I will change ENABLED to 1 see it makes a diffrence-thankyou falko

    In the 2nd post of this thread you showed how to install dcc-client from
    source but I was wondering if you would look at the bug report below and
    see if it affects the source tar ball also?



    ps I notice that ubuntu also do not have this package any more

    You've installed the latest DCC version, so you're not affected by that bug.
