Dear List,

i have an issue with spamassassin under debian wheezy (7.11) and spamassassin 
version 3.3.2.

my surrounding is as follows: perimeter smtp relay1 is postfix 2.9.6-2 on 
debian wheezy 7.11 (dedicated host) that transfers mails to relay2 which is 
postfix 2.9.6-2 on debian wheezy 7.11 (dedicated host) with spamassassin 
version 3.3.2. After spamassassin checks are done mails get transferred to 
relay3 which is lotus domino version9 on windows 2008r2.

Spamassassin is intended to only mark/tag mails as spam with the option in via the "add_header" option that a filter in the backend can sort out 
the mails that are flagged as spam by read out the headers X_Spam_Status Field.

So far so good. The concept works like it should with only one exception: Some 
mails are not tagged by spamassassin and i dont have a clue why. Viscerally i 
would say its about 20% of all mails that arent tagged by spamassassin.

My looks like (i shortened it and remove comments):


report_safe 0
required_score 4
bayes_auto_learn 0
report_charset iso-8859-1
report_contact hotl...@xxx.xx

whitelist_from *
whitelist_from *@*

# Add a spamassassin header to all messages so that we can filter them out
##add_header all Status _YESNO_, score=_SCORE_ required=_REQD_ tests=_TESTS_ 
autolearn=_AUTOLEARN_ version=_VERSION_
##add_header all Report
##add_header spam Flag _YESNOCAPS_
##add_header all Flag _YESNOCAPS_
add_header all Status _YESNO_

In the add_header area you can see what i tried. None of them solved the issue. 
Good Mails get a Field in the header as: X_Spam_Status like:


Feldname: X_Spam_Status
Datentyp: RFC822-Text
Datenlänge: 35 Byte
Seq.-Num.: 1
Doppeleintrags-ID: 0
RFC822 Typ: TEXT
RFC822 Kennzeichen: STRICT
Nativer Wert:


RFC822 Header-Name:


RFC822 Header-Begrenzer:

": "

RFC822 Header-Body:

4E 6F 0D 0A       No..


Bad Mails get no header from Spamassassin at all! Hopefully someone can shed 
some light whats missing or where the error is. Thank you really much in 

With kind of regards,

Maik Linnemann
