    Default SpamAssassin Question

    Alright I have been trying to get a couple SA things figured out with Zimbra over the last month when I have had time. First I found out that Zimbra was not set to automatically update the SA definitions each night and I seemed to have correct that. But now the files are going into /opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin/updates_spamassassin_org directory. After some testing, and looking at config files for sa-update Zimbra uses the /opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin directory to load the .cf files. Is there something I need to change in Zimbra's config to either read the update directory or do I need to have a script move those files for me each night and restart the zmamavisdctl service? I have read through the improving anti-spam wiki browsed through a number of thread on this forum but did not see a resolution to this issue. I didn't want to start modifying Zimbra's script to update Spam Assassin until I was sure what needs to happen.

    I am running Zimbra 8.0.7 Network edition on Ubuntu 12.04.

    Thank you,

    It sounds like you've broken the update function for SA, that's unfortunate. How to enable rule updates is documented at SpamAssassin Customizations - Zimbra :: Wiki

    If you'd simply followed that, things work as designed.
