Ummmm.... Close:-)
I honestly could have been more verbose... I meant:'
do a spamassassin lint for the MCP stuff .... This is from memory, so
might be wrong, but something like:
spamassassin --lint -D -p /etc/MailScanner/mcp/mcp.spam.assassin.prefs.conf
(perhaps end that with the usual "2>&1 | less -e" to have a chance to
read it all:-).
... I'm sure someone who has access to a MailScanner box ATM will
correct that, if it in some way would be wrong;-)
