Hi Lindsay,

Actually from reading the script I was able to create a suitable config.

Yup.

But now I see the TRIPWIRE config is croaking on some HTML in the cf:

***WARNING***: spamassassin --lint failed.
Rolling configuration files back, not restarting SpamAssassin.
Rollback command is: mv -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/tripwire.cf /etc/mail/spamassassin/RulesDuJour/99_FVGT_Tripwire.cf.2; rm -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/tripwire.cf; mv -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/70_sare_evilnum0.cf /etc/mail/spamassassin/RulesDuJour/70_sare_evilnum0.cf.2; rm -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/70_sare_evilnum0.cf; mv -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/70_sare_random.cf /etc/mail/spamassassin/RulesDuJour/70_sare_random.cf.2; rm -f /etc/mail/spamassassin/70_sare_random.cf;

Removing it from TRUSTED_RULESETS resolved the problem but apparently
something is not optimal.
