I agree it would be nice to check the update logs.
As for adding sare rules to update_spamassassin, according to http://www.rulesemporium.com/
"SARE rules aren't being updated". A better alternative is
OpenProtect's SpamAssassin sa-update channel at http://saupdates.openprotect.com
I would also suggest using Sought rules, you can find more info at http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/SoughtRules
. Another good idea is joining the spamassassin mailing list. I have
picked up a lot of good tips there.
