I wish to implement a process to update my *.cf files for spamassasin using sa-update. I do not have a separate install of spamassasin and am not allowed to install anything outside of the the /opt/zimbra tree. I have read a great deal of documentation/forums but there is nothing specific to zimbra and sa-update/spamassassin. The only info I could find was from BUG 27844 which gives short instructions on how to install sa-update. I'm able to get sa-update to download the files and then dropped into the correct directory

[zimbra@lwmtai1 ~]$ ls -la /opt/zimbra/lib/spamassassin/3.002005/updates_spamassassin_org | head -10
total 596
drwxr-x--- 2 zimbra zimbra   4096 Mar  3 14:19 .
drwxr-x--- 3 zimbra zimbra   4096 Mar  3 13:01 ..

-rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra  11019 Mar  3 11:46 20_dynrdns.cf
But I am then unable to have spamassassin read these new files.

Is spamassassin suppose to read the default files in /opt/zimbra/conf/sapmmassassin and this new repository or just the new repositiory?

sa-update file:
my $DEF_RULES_DIR   = '/opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin';
my $LOCAL_RULES_DIR = '/opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin';  
my $LOCAL_STATE_DIR = '/opt/zimbra/lib/spamassassin';
$self->{LOCAL_STATE_DIR}      ||= '/opt/zimbra/lib/spamassassin';
Any pointers help would be appreciated
