That will doubtless help, but I have similar issues with 3.1.1.


This bug isn't helping:

I'd look at upgrading to 3.3.1 of SA and of course make sure you run
SA-update regularly.

For ages MailScanner and spamassassin have been doing a fantastic job
and we've had almost no spam at all. However, recently I've noticed a
slow but steady increase in spam that seems to be slipping past with a
very low score. I'm still using some of the old sare rulesets (rulesets
listed below) as they seem to be catching spam although the number these
days seems to be dropping off apart from the adult one which is still
quite effective. Could these be interfering with the standard rulesets
in the version of SA installed (3.2.5 and perl 5.8.8)?




We also use spamhaus, spamcop,m barracuda and abuseat blacklists in the
MTA. MS is 4.79.11, and I've the KAM rulesets and ScamNailer 2.09 and
clamav with the sanesecurity addins.


Are there any tricks I'm missing on this setup?
