Hi Kai,

Thanks for the help.

I am using the perf file I tested with in my mailscanner.conf

My initial statement was not clear I admit. I do not see any mention in
my log of email being scanned and sent through Spamassassin. It just
shows that the mail was scanned bu the Virus tools.

I have recieved some spam to my mailbox and on looking at ther header I
noticed that there was no line for spamassassin. This would normaly be

I hve looked at the system and cannot determine why this would be.

Therefore I have asked the list if anyone perhaps has had the same issue
and / or knows of ways I can test this and perhaps fix it.

 Nothing seems wrong with the lint perhaps you can find something

 Seems so. You may want to flesh out this statement then: "it seems that 
the spamassasin side of MS i not working." And: do you use *that* prefs 
file in MailScanner.conf, or do you use a different one?
