    Hi,

    Some inspection on spamassassin learned me that there are some dependencies missing on a plain The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1) ISPConfig 2.2.6 system.

    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin -D --lint 2>&1 | tee /tmp/output.txt

    cat /tmp/output.txt | grep fail

    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: IO::Zlib ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: Mail::SPF::Query ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: IP::Country::Fast ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: Razor2::Client::Agent ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: Net::Ident ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: IO::Socket::INET6 ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: IO::Socket::SSL ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: diag: module not installed: Archive::Tar ('require' failed)
    [15726] dbg: plugin: registering glue method for check_for_spf_softfail (Mail::SpamAssassin::plugin::SPF=HASH(0x9115e00))
    [15726] dbg: plugin: registering glue method for check_for_spf_helo_softfail (Mail::SpamAssassin::plugin::SPF=HASH(0x9115e00))
    [15726] dbg: plugin: registering glue method for check_for_spf_fail (Mail::SpamAssassin::plugin::SPF=HASH(0x9115e00))
    [15726] dbg: bayes: opportunistic call attempt failed, DB not readable


    Is it just me or does the system benifit from the extra installed perlmodules ?

    Is is a concious desision by the designers of ISPConfig to not include these ?

    The solution would be:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

    install IO::Zlib
    install Mail::SPF::Query
    install IP::Country::Fast
    install Razor2::Client::Agent
    install Net::Ident
    install IO::Socket::INET6
    install IO::Socket::SSL
    install Archive::Tar

    Is there anything agains this ? Could is create havoc in any shape or way ?

    Maybe its a good addition or optional addition to TPS docs. It might as well be an overkill.

    On a debian system one might do

    apt-get install razor pyzor dcc-client

    And add to spam assassins:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

    # dcc
    use_dcc 1
    dcc_path /usr/bin/dccproc
    dcc_add_header 1
    dcc_dccifd_path /usr/sbin/dccifd

    #pyzor
    use_pyzor 1
    pyzor_path /usr/bin/pyzor
    pyzor_add_header 1

    #razor
    use_razor2 1
    razor_config /etc/razor/razor-agent.conf

    #bayes
    use_bayes 1
    use_bayes_rules 1
    bayes_auto_learn 1


    And peform A:

    razor-admin -create
    razor-admin -register

    Afterward

    Are there any pitfalls to do so on a ISPConfig System ??

    I really like to know the opinions on this topic

    Thanks

    I think i got it figured

    When i looked closer i saw that the above mentioned perlmodules get reconized in a later stadium.

    I discoverd that spamassassin is updateble with this command

    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update --updatedir /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/share/spamassassin

    I have implenmented this on Mandriva without any hassles - but loading the perl modules via rpm's from Mandriva's site.

    I do however have problems with 3 perl modules on ubuntu 6.10.
    install Razor2::Client::Agent << CPAN have no module like this to install.
    install Net::Ident << these 3 need to be installed with "force"
    install IO::Socket::INET6
    install IO::Socket::SSL

    Anther is on ISPC 2.2.9 I get messages about some of the settings you made to local.cf those was Either defined elseware and or not understandable. I commented those that gave me errors.
    It does bother me and obvious does it not all work. Can you assist with these?
    I have also read about accumilating known spam in a single mail mailbox and then "training" the setup with it. maybe you can clarify this for me.

    I think you can install them through apt. Just search for the appropriate packages with
    Code:
    apt-cache search [I]search_string[/I]

    Thank you Falko, I'm still bit nOOb with ubuntu
    I loaded The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server (Edgy Eft) and ISPConfig as per Installation instructions and had to run some extra installs to get razor, pyzor, dcc-client going.
    Execute the test
    Code:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin -D --lint 2>&1 | tee /tmp/output.txt
    check the errors
    Code:
    cat /tmp/output.txt | grep fail
    If any perl modules is listed you can follow the insturctions below
    To install the missing data file
    Code:
    su
    cd /root/.spamassassin/
    wget http://www.fsl.com/support/bayes-Linux-SA-3.0-starter-db.tar.gz
    tar xvfz bayes-Linux-SA-3.0-starter-db.tar.gz
    cd bayes
    mv * ../
    cd ..
    rmdir bayes
    Now for the applications, we install the main apps 1st as they install some missing perl modules automatically.
    Code:
    apt-get install razor pyzor dcc-client
    apt-get install libarchive-tar-perl
    apt-get install libio-socket-ssl-perl
    apt-get install libio-socket-inet6-perl
    apt-get install libnet-ident-perl
    apt-get install libmail-spf-query-perl
    then the last 2 modules we need to MCPAN
    Code:
    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    Answer no to the manual setup question as most of us do not know what is gong on there anycase, we need to trust the gutfeel of the coder. Also just enter past the questions asked with the install of install LWP::UserAgent
    Code:
    install IP::Country::Fast
    install LWP::UserAgent
    Execute the test again to verify
    Code:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin -D --lint 2>&1 | tee /tmp/output.txt
    check the errors
    Code:
    cat /tmp/output.txt | grep fail
    If you still have missing stuff - plse google or use
    Code:
    apt-cache search
    for the missing modules.
    After all this I have found some more issues in the report that concerns me.
    Code:
    cat /tmp/output.txt | grep "local tests only"
    [10786] dbg: pyzor: local tests only, disabling Pyzor
    [10786] dbg: razor2: local tests only, skipping Razor
    [10786] dbg: reporter: local tests only, disabling SpamCop
    [10786] dbg: rules: local tests only, ignoring RBL eval
    Iguess the local user files need to enable these per-user basis, but i do not know how to confirm this or what settings I need to do to enable these! Please assit!
