User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.4.3)
Description of problem:
The default config includes orbs.dorkslayers.com which according to
is no longer available. Subsequently it returns true for every query.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RHEL spamassassin and use default config
Actual Results: All email receives scores from orbs.dorkslayers.com
falsely inflating SPAM scores
Expected Results: No score assigned by orbs.dorkslayers.com test
Please, please, please, please upgrade this package to 3.0.2 for RHEL3!
2.55 is WOEFULLY out of date (as in almost two years)!!
Here's a possible workaround for Karl's problem (hey, it works for me):
1. Add "FEATURE(`dnsbl', `sbl.spamhaus.org')dnl" and similar to your
sendmail.mc and rebuild your sendmail.cf
2. Add "skip_rbl_checks 1" to /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and
However, in an attempt to resolve my "stale spamassassin" problem, I
grabbed the spamassassin-3.0.1 source rpm from the RHEL4 release,
downloaded spamassassin-3.0.2 from apache and tweaked the spec file to
use it. The rpmbuild complained about MakeMaker needing to be version
6.11 or later, but built the package anyway. Trying to install the
resulting binary rpm results in the error:
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.8.0) is needed by spamassassin-3.0.2-0.fi
Not being a Perl-wizard, I an unsure how to proceed. Any suggestions?
to remove lines 277-279.
While an updated RPM might put this back, let's hope not since anyone preparing
an update should know that dorkslayers.com is dead.
Closing WONTFIX, RHEL3 spamassassin will not be updated.
