Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DCC/g;" -pi /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre
2. perl -e "s/^#loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Razor2/loadplugin 
Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Razor2/g;" -pi /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre 


cat >> /etc/mail/spamassassin/ < EOF
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::SPF
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::URIDNSBL
