Hello all,

I run a bog-standard out-of-the-box (Fedora 8) SA (v.3.2.4) installation.

Every night I run:
sa-update --channelfile /etc/mail/spamassassin/sare-sa-update-channels.txt
--gpgkey 856AA88A && /sbin/service spamassassin restart

as a cron job. Never been a problem before. But this morning I find this
in my root email:

Has anyone else had this problem?
What should I do to fix it?

Thanks for any help...

Mark

p.s.

Running SA -D --lint showed no aparent problems (well, there were a couple
of SARE "undefined dependencies", but I don't think they're relevant to
this - I'll make that the subjetc of another post in due course).
