Subject: RE: SaneSecurity


None of my sane signatures are being applied to the SA scores. They get tagged in the headers but not in the SA score.
I have MailScanner-4.83.5 version (FreeBSD - via a shar from the maintainer), they don't work. On another version, MailScanner-4.83.4 they work fine.

Any ideas to a fix on this? I don't see any problems on --lint.

Many thanks,

I did an update on FreeBSD also, and i noticed some strange things also.
After some investigation, it became clear that /usr/local/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf was no longer linked to /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin.

Maybe linking /usr/local/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf to /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin solves your problem.
Al versions before 4.83.5 had the file linked to /usr/local/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf

ms03 # cd /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/
ms03 spamassassin # ls -al
