Spam Assassin Help

For some reason (I don’t know why) Spam Assassin isn’t scanning for Spam. When I look in /var/log/procmail.log it shows

check: no loaded plugin implements ‘check_main’: cannot scan at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Mail/SpamAssassin/ line 164.
procmail: Program failure (2) of “/usr/bin/spamassassin”
procmail: Rescue of unfiltered data suceeded.

I’m running CentOS 5.5 with Virtualmin 3.79.gpl GPL.

Hrm, that’s an unusual problem, it sounds like something about your SpamAssassin installation may be broken.

I’m curious what you see if you log in over SSH, and run this from the command line:

rpm -qa | grep spamassassin

Also, how did you go about installing Virtualmin – did you by chance use the script?



Yes, this server was installed using the “” script. It’s running Virtualmin GPL, and SpamAssassin 3.2.5-1 currently.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated while I work to diagnose the issue.

Peter fixed it by reinstalling SpamAssassin. Maybe he’ll chime in with something more specific.
