    We are currently ISPConfig2. Newest version

    We have made some tweaks to the Spam Assassin file to increase the score of

    score BAYES_99 0 0 5.0 5.0

    score RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET 0 3.188 0 3.960 # n=0 n=2

    score RCVD_IN_PBL 0 3.509 0 3.905 # n=0 n=2

    and a couple of others.

    We have restarted spam Assassin so the changes can take place but we are still getting spam emails that have a score like this

    No, score=4.7 required=7.0 tests=BAYES_99,RCVD_IN_PBL,RDNS_NONE, XMAILER_MIMEOLE_OL_5B79A autolearn=no version=3.2.5

    If you look at the above score it should be at least 7.5 since we made the bayes_99 5.0 and the PBL 3.5 changes

    So for some reason our spam assassin changes are not getting processed. Can someone let us know how to get our new scores to take action?

    We are also looking for any other spam assassin tweaks since we do get a lot of spam.

    In which exact file did you made the changes (full path)?

    ISPConfig 2 comes with its own SpamAssassin. The score files are in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/share/spamassassin/.

    when i go to /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/share/spamassassin/ the only files in there are


    There is no other files. i suspect the score files are somewhere else?

    That's strange. Did you check if maybe they are in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/etc/ or its subdirectories?

    we found 2 instances of the scores files


    I beleive the /var directory is the correct one running but i wanted to show you in case anything is wrong. Does this seem like the correct one?

    how can we tell which spam assassin is being used? is there a mail config file that tells us which spam assail files we are using?

    Can you try
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update --no-gpg
    ? Does it put any score files in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/share/spamassassin/?
