Description of problem:
User sends an actual email from M$ Outlook 2003 (X-Mailer: Microsoft
Office Outlook, Build 11.0.5510) and spamassassin thinks that it's a
"Forged mail pretending to be from MS Outlook".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send email from M$ Outlook 2003 to a completely updated RHEL3
system with spamassassin installed, configured, and enabled.
Actual Results: X-Spam-Report: This mail is probably spam. The
original message has been attached
FORGED_MUA_OUTLOOK (3.5 points) Forged mail pretending to be from
Expected Results: Spamassassin to recognize email from Microsoft
Outlook 2003 without flagging it as "forged" and scoring it 3.5 points.
Ok, RHEL3 Update 5 was released, late, and still doesn't have spamassassin
3.xx!! I'm still having this problem with this stale version, as well as the
problem in bug #144751. Additionally, the URIBL_SBL feature is a feature that
is sorely missing from 2.55-3.4!
I'm going to go out on a limb, here, and recommend that you either update
spamassassin to 3.xx in RHEL3, or remove it completely from the distribution in
Update 6. It does NOBODY any good to keep a stale/broken package around in an
Closing WONTFIX, RHEL3 spamassassin will not be updated.
