    Check the header of your emails if this rule appears there on non spam emails. I dont have any problems with that on my servers.

    Hi Till,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes this rule is in the headers, this from an email...

    3.4 FH_DATE_PAST_20XX The date is grossly in the future.

    And a quick test showed a known address being marked as SPAM. Which .cf file do I need to modify? I see there are two

    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/etc/mail/spamassassin/ and


    Although the first one has no expressions specified.

    Run this command as root:


    Most likely the spamassassin devs have released a rule update already. If this does not help, edit the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/etc/mail/spamassassin/

    You need to install LWP::UserAgent. Which distribution do you use?

    ok thank you, the install works fine but now comes the next problem

    see here

    server:~# /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update
    Can't locate Archive/ in @INC (@INC contains: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/share/perl/5.8.8 /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl) at /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update line 81.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/sa-update line 81.
    is something with the install wrong so it looks like the archive is missing.

    The perl tar module is missing. Install it with:

    apt-get install libarchive-tar-perl

    I did not know the package name as well and had to search for it, a good strategy to find it is for example:

    apt-cache search perl | grep tar

    Thank you very much till. I also left the errors mentioned but it worked perfect with the packages you suggested to install.

    I had the 2010 date issue (mandriva 2008.1) with Spamassassin.
    I tried to install this using urpmi and it said I had to update some packages and gave a list. I said yes and it did an update which screwed up my ssl and shutdown apache. I removed ssl confs (dont use at the moment) and apache runs OK now. However now when I want to run sa-update I get /usr/bin/perl5.8.8 missing error. There is now a perl5.10.0 file there instead.
    Can you tell me how to change sa-update to use this new version please.

    Which ISPConfig version?

    Hi Till

    Version: 2.2.21

    Also Spamassassin has stopped working so I guess what I did updated the Perl version and that broke everything that was configured to use the older version. Should I be trying to backgrade the Perl version, or do I need to update Spamassassin or ISPConfig somehow, or will getting sa-update working just fix everything when it updates?

    same problem here except that updating spamassassin, running sa-update and restarting SA didn't help. The commands completed without errors but the 2010 bug still persists.

    Running ispcfg 3 (latest version as of now) on a Debian 5.04 box.

    any hints?
