Performance problem after upgrading from SA 3.2.1 to 3.2.2

When I installed SA 3.2.2 from the package from, it did not add any plugins or uncomment any plugins - you are correct.

On this one MX box I used the tarball from the site that had clamav and spamassassin 3.2.2 - I'm wondering if that process may have added the plugin.  That process may have appended these plugins.

loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::SPF
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::URIDNSBL
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::ASN

You are also correct, and each added plugin should be reviewed and tested to see if processing time is affected (logging options in MailScanner that show time per message when processing new batches).

It's sometimes difficult to determine if a plugin is necessary and all of the ramifications of adding it.

Point taken though.

A sidenote. He also posted this to the sa list. This plugin does *not* get 
used automatically and it wasn't added with 3.2.2 as he claims. It was 
added with 3.2.0 and you have to uncomment it for use. So, normally it's 
off! One should also read the documentation for it, before using it!
