Well, I just sent myself the confirmed spam from my yahoo account, but still
no spamassassin intervention. I know it would be flagged as spam if
spamassassin were looking at it, because I tried scanning it with
"spamassassin -t". Any other ideas? Is there a mailscanner debug option that
can show me what's happening at the point that spamassassin would normally
be called?
