Tom Collins sent me the FreeBSD ports patch with code to enable spamassassin. It pretty much did the whole job except for the pw_gid flags, some configure.in changes and a new vmoduser option to disable spam assassin. So the patch is ready ahead of schedule, whoo hoo!
I'm running it on our mail server now and it seems to be working just fine. The patch is up on source forge RequestID 877367 Summary spamassassin patch against cvs One thing to note. If you start spamd with the -c option it should automatically create the users .spamassassin directory where bayes files can be kept. Be careful about allowing bayes, the files can get over 1M. I'm running spamd with these options "-d -c -v -uvpopmail" Currently my .spamassassin directory has these files: |bayes_journal bayes_seen bayes_toks user_prefs| The user_prefs file is where we can have qmailadmin/vqadmin support required_hits, safe_report and whitelists I'll try to write up a README.spamassassin tomorrow.
