sorry for posting OOT to mailscanner...

how do u do a proper install with spam assassin ? i am trying to install the
latest rpm

the command u asked me to type in still says 2.50
i tried rpm -i --nodeps spamassassin-2.53-1.8.0.i386.rpm
and this too - rpm -i --nodeps perl-Mail-SpamAssassin-2.53-1.8.0.i386.rpm

i tried rpm with -U and --force options but still cant get it upgraded

but after i type in your still says 2.50 and even
spamassassin -V says it is 2.50

But what did
perl -MMail::SpamAssassin -le 'print $Mail::SpamAssassin::VERSION;'
That's checking the version of SpamAssassin you really have installed where
perl is looking for it, not just some version you happen to have unpacked
in another directory.
