    Default [SOLVED] Spamassassin Questions

    What is the the difference in the Spamassassin that is loaded with the
    apt-get install spamassassin
    and the Spamassassin the runs under perl?

    The reason that I ask is that Spamassassin seems to be working in Zimbra, as evidenced but the headers, but upon reboot an error message stating that the spamassassin daemon could not start.

    If these are indeed two separate implementations of the same program. How can I remove the daemon version and not harm the perl version training?

    I don't know why there'd be a conflict -- Zimbra's spamassassin runs within amavisd, not as spamd -- but that's of only academic interest. Practically speaking, unless you're doing something fancy and nonstandard, the apt-gotten installation is irrelevant and unnecessary.

    Phoenix, Thanks for the reply.

    The message that I saw concerning Spamassassin was on the system console during a reboot. I have looked through every log file that I can think of and have been unable to find the reference to Spamassassin I saw. Being a newby to Linux, I do not know just where the console log resides. I am using Ubuntu 8.04.

    I will keep looking.

    Rich,

    Since it is unnecessary, how do I get rid of it or at least stop it from trying to load.

    OK, it's likely to not be a Zimbra problem. Have a look at the programs set to start at boot and disable any spamassassin you find there. You can probably just uninstall it. If you're new to managing a linux server then you'd probably find it useful to install Webmin , you can make modifications to the startup daemons via the webmin UI.

    Thanks for the help. I was able to use Webmin to disable spamassassin
