spamassassin not invoked

I installed virtualmin on centos 6.3 using the installer script.

Spam filtering is enabled in features.

Checking Configuration tells me:

Mail server Postfix is installed and configured.

Your Postfix version does not support per-domain outgoing IP addresses.

SpamAssassin and Procmail are installed and configured for use.

ClamAV is installed and assumed to be running.

… your system is ready for use by Virtualmin.

in the virtualmin configuration, Postfix is selected as mail server. In the spam filtering options I have:

  • deliver normally
  • delete viruses
  • Default spam whitelist option is disabled

Current versions:

virtualmin-base 1.0-63
virtualmin-release 1.0.5
Spamassassin 3.3.1-2
Postfix 2.6.6-2.2
procmail 3.22-25.1

all mentioned daemons are running, incoming mail is not inspected by spamd, it even does not come up in the maillog. I cannot see any error message.

I also tried to use the global /etc/procmailrc without success.


If you go into Edit Virtual Server -> Enabled Features for a given domain, is the Spam Filtering feature for that domain enabled?

If that’s not enabled, even if SpamAssassin is running, it wouldn’t be used.


yes, it is enabled.
