Hi folks,

I have just posted 4.26.6 on the website for you all. Download from as usual.

This is intended as a final testing release before 4.26 goes stable,
will hopefully be this weekend. If you could test it out and let me know
any problems as soon as possible, I will get them fixed.

Thanks folks!

Changes this time are:

* New Features and Improvements *
- Improved configuration engine so that rules can now contain 2 tests
   separated by "and".
- Added "notify" Spam Action and High Scoring Spam Action. This will
cause a
   short text notification message to be sent to the recipients of the
   message. The filename of the report is set with the "Recipient Spam
   configuration setting. There is also an MCP equivalent of this
   functionality. See the MCP documentation for details of the settings.
- Removed the "bounce" spam action.
- Added regular rebuild of Bayes database. Has 2 options associated with
   which I haven't included in the conf file yet.
- Added "Rebuild Bayes Every" and "Wait During Bayes Rebuild" options to
   configure the operation of the regular Bayes database rebuilds.
- Added commented "bayes_auto_expire 0" line to spam.assassin.prefs.conf
   you will want to uncomment this line if you are using the regular
   Bayes database expiry feature given above.
- Added "Minimum Stars If On Spam List" setting so that people who just
   on the "Spam Stars" can catch messages which only trigger the "Spam
- Added "Log Non Spam" option to allow logging of all non-spam, which
can be
   coerced into logging SpamAssassin scores of non-spam mail.
- Added support for Norman virus scanner (
- Added logging of ids of dropped silent viruses.
- Added "Too Many Attachments" error report in a message instead of old
   report saying it could not analyse the message.
- No longer stops or restarts after RPM upgrade.
- Added MCP patches for SpamAssassin 2.61 and 2.63.
- Added 'SpamAssassin Site Rules Dir' setting to locate
- Spanish translations of languages.conf updated from Debian
- Added Catalan translation of all report files.
- Added bogusmx list to supplied spam.lists.conf.
- Added spamhaus-XBL and SBL+XBL lists to supplied spam.lists.conf.
- Changed the version number scheme from major.minor-teeny to
- Forced owner to be root.root in both RPM spec files, so can be
re-built by
   non-root users.
- Added my "wish list" to the donations page.
- Detailed spam report now includes auto-learn status if it was

* Fixes *

than 60.
