I show respect, I did by private bug report, but I get told I need to read documentation, I am no newby, but alas mailscanner dev think so, so I ask myself why  waste my time with bug report when not welcome, I have private mail too by someone who has similar problem, they say run slackware, we run debian, he think it because  run latest perl modules. but why I care now after mailscanner dev response. my 5 yo son could tell the answers from amavisd is different to what mailscanner be.

So sorry for wasting my time, wont report bugs anymore here

    Did you even read my report?

    I state it work with spamassassin directly, it work with amavisd, it work with mailscanner until SA upgrade. so very obviously SA works as all read /etc/postfix/spamassassin/*, just not properly with mailscanner anymore, do you treat everyone like this and dismiss out of hand without reading or comprehend what said or investigate? 

    and yes /etc/postfix is symlink to /etc/mail, else amavisd would not work.

      If it is not doing the tests, then you have not enabled them in the /etc/mail/spamassassin/v*.pre files.
      This is not a MailScanner problem, I suggest you read the SA documentation.

        BUG REPORT

        MailScanner does not do many SpamAssassin tests, this is local rules and

        URI tests, eg: .multi.uribl.com and all others

        Problem only notice after upgrade SA 3.2.5 to 3.3.0. MailScanner work fine

        for many month with same configuration even from last version which also has

        this problem. In testing we even remove all the whitelists.


        MailScanner-4.79.11-1 source install

        SpamAssassin 3.3.0 from CPAN

        Perl Modules - all required installed and update from CPAN

        MailScanner and SpamAssassin both --lint OK

        MailScanner run as user postfix

        amavisd-new run as user vscan

        /etc/postfix/spamassasin owner is root directory is 0755

        Unreproducable by spamassasin -t < queue file

        Unreproducable by amavisd-new

        both of these tests score as expected.

        Monitor of Bind show MailScanner does not ask URI questions

        also scan real fast and not asking Razor or DCC



        Using MailScanner and amavisd-new together, MailScanner take message

        first before amavisd-new.

        MailScanner say-

        X-YUKI-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam, SpamAssassin (not cached, score=0,

        required 3, autolearn=disabled)

        amavisd-new say-

        X-Virus-Scanned: amavisd-new at YUKI

        X-Spam-Flag: NO

        X-Spam-Score: 1.313

        X-Spam-Level: *

        X-Spam-Status: No, score=1.313 tagged_above=-999 required=3

        tests=[URI_HEX=1.313] autolearn=disabled
