Hi, all. I recently "upgraded" my Ubuntu server to Precise, and lo!
Wasn't I surprised when I realized there was no MailScanner any more. I
tried following the directions on the MailScanner site for doing an install
from Debian sources, but that appears to be outdated and no longer valid.
So I installed from source, and created a link from my old
/etc/MailScanner directory to /opt/MailScanner/etc. And it *almost* works.
But it doesn't. I get this:
Sep 7 09:06:37 beacon MailScanner: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner
version 4.84.5 starting...
Sep 7 09:06:37 beacon MailScanner: Could not read Custom Functions
Sep 7 09:06:37 beacon MailScanner: Reading configuration file
Sep 7 09:06:37 beacon MailScanner: Read 817 hostnames from the
Sep 7 09:06:38 beacon MailScanner: Read 5141 hostnames from the
Sep 7 09:06:39 beacon MailScanner: Using SpamAssassin results cache
Sep 7 09:06:39 beacon MailScanner: Connected to SpamAssassin cache
Sep 7 09:06:39 beacon MailScanner: Enabling SpamAssassin
Sep 7 09:06:43 beacon MailScanner: waiting for children to die: Process
did not exit cleanly, returned 255 with signal 0
Rinse and repeat.
Eventually, my mail *does* seem to have made it through, except that I'm no
longer filtering for spam:
X--MailScanner-SpamCheck: notspam, spamassassin (sadisabled)
Which is almost worse than not getting any at all. (One of my e-mail
addresses has been around for a l-o-n-g time, and is probably on every damn
spam list there is.)
Suggestions on how to enable more debugging (Google came up surprisingly
empty), or other things to look at/tweak?
