I updated my
/etc/spamassassin/local.cf spamassassin file to update some score rules. However, even after restarting spamassassin (via service), the new score are not shown in spam emails. In fact, nothing in that file seem to influence how spamassassin work.
I use exim as my MTA but that should not matter. All packages were installed via apt-get and are at the latest version for 14.04.
For example, I have this:
score HTML_MESSAGE 2.0
/etc/spamassassin/local.cf. I restarted both exim and spamassassin.
spamassassing --lint shows that there are no errors int hat file. Then got yet another spam with this:
0.0 HTML_MESSAGE BODY: HTML included in message
In the X-Spam-Report field.
spamassassin -D < spam and the order of loading of cfg files seems to be wrong:
Jun 8 13:34:07.300  dbg: config: read file /etc/spamassassin/local.cf ... Jun 8 13:34:07.600  dbg: config: read file /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004000/updates_spamassassin_org/50_scores.cf ... Jun 8 13:34:07.787  dbg: config: read file /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004000/updates_spamassassin_org/73_sandbox_manual_scores.cf Jun 8 13:34:07.788  dbg: config: fixed relative path: /var/lib/spamassas sin/3.004000/updates_spamassassin_org/local.cf ...
What is going on?
Well, that was a waste of 100 reputation for a bounty!
