doing it itself), but does anyone know how to verify whether Razor >or DCC
are actually being run or used at all???

the spamassassin distribution include a test file, sample-spam.txt which is
listed in Razor and the DCC

either run

spamassassin -t < <filepath>/sample-spam.txt

or force the file through mailscanner by sending it as mail. The file
contains headers etc.

if DCD and RAZOR are working you will see reference to them in the
spamassassin analysis


SPAM: DCC_CHECK          (8.0 points)  Listed in DCC, see
SPAM: RAZOR2_CHECK       (7.8 points)  Listed in Razor2, see
