    Hello everybody,

    on one of my servers running ispconfig, spamassassin suddenly stopped working a couple of days ago. There is no sign of SA in the mail.log and in the headers of the mails.
    What could be the problem here?

    The ISPConfig spamassassin does not log to the mail log, so you will never see a sign there. Please run the following command to test spamassassin:


    if you dont get an error and the shell just seems to hang, then everything is fine. Run ctrl + c to stop the test.

    running /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin does not give back any errors, so after your post it can be concluded that spamassassin works propertly? But more and more users on the server are complaining that they get a lot of spam since a couple of days, before there was barely no spam received on the server...

    Please run
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/spamassassin/usr/bin/spamassassin --lint
    Is there any output?

    This means that the syntax of the SpamAssassin configuration is ok.
    Can you check the .procmailrc files of your users if SpamAssassin is enabled there?
