    Trying to get the above installed, and run into few problems till now:

    1. dcc versions were different, went to the url and downloaded the latest and installed. - SOLVED
    2. libdigest-sha1-perl version different, went to the url and tried to install, it failed. - PENDING

    dpkg -i libdigest-sha1-perl_2.13-1build1_amd64.deb
    Selecting previously unselected package libdigest-sha1-perl.
    (Reading database ... 88050 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking libdigest-sha1-perl (from libdigest-sha1-perl_2.13-1build1_amd64.deb) ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libdigest-sha1-perl:
    libdigest-sha1-perl depends on perlapi-5.12.3; however:
    Package perlapi-5.12.3 is not installed.
    dpkg: error processing libdigest-sha1-perl (--install):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Processing triggers for man-db ...
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    3. Postfix is giving an error while starting and stopping.

    /usr/sbin/postconf: warning: /etc/postfix/ unused parameter: rbl_policy=reject_rbl_client, reject_rbl_client
    postfix/postfix-script: stopping the Postfix mail system

    Any help would be appreciated.

    perlapi-5.12.3 is missing, you need that installed before libdigest will install.

    Sorry didn't see this reply earlier. Are you still available to help on this ? Is there an updated guide on this ?

    I am looking to filter both incoming and outgoing spam (separate machines, NOT inside one install). Will appreciate the help.

    You'd have to setup another spamsnake for outgoing mail, setup postfix with your mailserver ip in its mynetworks section, then tell your mailserver to use it as a smarthost.

    If you have a powerful enough server, use a single box for everything.

    Is there an updated howto for installation of spamsnake ? The existing one doesn't work :(

    Can it be installed on a debian/ centos instead of ubuntu ? We use debian/ centos all across, so would prefer to use them instead of ubuntu.
