SpamAssassin Process

Try running SpamAssassin from the command line...

spamassassin -t -D < testmail

You'll need an email message including headers in the file testmail.

You may need to do some searching to find the spamassassin binary, mine was
in /usr/perl5/bin or something like that.

Helped me find out what was wrong with DCC today.

When I look at the header this is what it says:

X-Priority: 3
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1158
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1165
X-MailScanner: Found to be clean, Found to be clean
X-MailScanner-Information: Please contact the ISP for more information
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam, SpamAssassin (timed out)
X-UIDL: *X<"!]Y$"!>Fk!!D=[!!

Some more information that might be helpful also, I am running SA 2.53 (not
2.54) and the newest version of MailScanner.
