    Hi, I'm wondering abit about spamassassin, I've used it to rewrite subjects to ***SPAM*** and it works like a charm, but now after having seen that it works as it is supposed to I thought I'd change it to reject SPAM mail instead, but nothing happends when I do so, am I supposed to restart something or what??

    Regards
    Torbjörn

    In the homedir of that user there is a file called .spamassassin.rc (with a dot at the beginning!).

    Can you post that file here?

    Code:
    # SpamAssassin sample procmailrc
    #
    # Pipe the mail through spamassassin (replace 'spamassassin' with 'spamc'
    # if you use the spamc/spamd combination)
    # The condition line ensures that only messages smaller than 250 kB
    # (250 * 1024 = 256000 bytes) are processed by SpamAssassin. Most spam
    # isn't bigger than a few k and working with big messages can bring
    # SpamAssassin to its knees.

    * < 256000

    Looks correct. All spam should be sent to /dev/null.

    Well I agree, but it doesn't... :(

    All spam is still getting through with the subject rewritten

    Have you checked the header of the mails, if it contains the
    Code:
    X-Spam-Status: Yes
    part?

    @hagel: Do your mail headers contain
    Code:
    X-Spam-Status: Yes
    or
    Code:
    X-Spam-Flag: YES
    ? That's an important difference! :)
