Dear All,

I had a mail server with the following characteristics:
Redhat9 (Kernel 2.4.20-8)
Spamassassin 3.0.1.

The mail server was working fine but the spamassassing was missing a lot of
spam messages. So, I tried to upgrade it to version 3.1.8. by installing
the following packages:

After some more steps i ended up to:
1) When I run "spamassassin -V" I get: SpamAssassin version 3.1.8 running on
Perl version 5.8.0
2) When I run "sa-learn --dump magic" I get:
0.000 0 3 0 non-token data: bayes db version
0.000 0 1717 0 non-token data: nspam
0.000 0 674 0 non-token data: nham
0.000 0 84131 0 non-token data: ntokens
0.000 0 1108487840 0 non-token data: oldest atime
0.000 0 1198748434 0 non-token data: newest atime
0.000 0 1198749846 0 non-token data: last journal sync
0.000 0 0 0 non-token data: last expiry atime
0.000 0 0 0 non-token data: last expire atime
0.000 0 0 0 non-token data: last expire
reduction co
3)When I run "sa-update" I get no result, but the first time i did it, the
following folder was created: /var/lib/spamassassin/3.001008/
4)When I run "spamassassin --lint" I get no error message.

The PROBLEM is that spamassassin still misses a lot of spam messages and
actually acts like before.
Even if it seems that the new version is running now, I think that the old
spamassassin deals with the incoming emails.

Please take a look in my configuration files below:


| /usr/bin/spamc

required_hits 5
rewrite_header subject ***spam***
report_safe 0
use_bayes 1
bayes_auto_learn 1
ok_locales all

I am pretty sure that i am missing something. Is there any way to check if
the incoming emails are handled by the new spamassassin? If indeed the new
spamassassin handles all the incoming emails then why all this training by
sa-update and sa-learn has given no evolution?

Thank you in advance!
