  1. version now in X-Spam-Checker-Version, so remove from X-Spam-Status

    Gentlemen, I am frustrated by the duplication of information in:
    X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin
    3.2.5-mon_sep__8_23_53_29_2008.jidanni2.jidanni.org (2008-06-10) on
    jidanni2.jidanni.org
    X-Spam-Status: No, score=0.0 required=1.9 tests=none autolearn=disabled
    version=3.2.5-mon_sep__8_23_53_29_2008.jidanni2.jidanni.org

    Why not just chuck the newly arrived X-Spam-Checker-Version, I said to
    myself. However,

    Note that X-Spam-Checker-Version is not removable because
    the version information is needed by mail administrators

    OK, then I tried tinkering with

    version_tag string
    This tag is appended to the SA version in the X-Spam-Status
    header...your last name or your initials

    which doesn't yet mention that it ends up in X-Spam-Checker-Version
    too... indeed it's either both or nothing.

    The obvious solution is to not include version in X-Spam-Status
    anymore, as it is not a statusy item, and naturally belongs instead in
    X-Spam-Checker-Version, which being a like-it-or-not item, might as
    well carry it alone.

    Then why not just remove it. This is the default:

    add_header all Status _YESNO_, score=_SCORE_ required=_REQD_ tests=_TESTS_
    autolearn=_AUTOLEARN_ version=_VERSION_

    according to 'perldoc Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf'.

    Add the above in your local.cf and knock off the 'version=_VERSION_' part.

    Problem solved. SpamAssassin _IS_ configurable.

    Yay, a 51 char long version string.

    Indeed, I'd be annoyed (not frustrated, though) by that, too. However,
    it's not the default. Not even close. In my headers, the version string
    "3.2.5" is barely noticeable.

    Yeah, just remove it. Or, maybe, stick to a shorter version identifier.
    You don't need all that information encoded into that string of yours,
    do you?
