    Default Fix for SA Configure Files Version Mismatch

    I was getting quite a few of these errors of version mismatches with spamassassin's configure files. I beleive this is causing a few spam checks to be not run by amavis. The following is an example of the error, zmtrainsa will also throw these errors.

    config: configuration file "/opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin/" requires version 3.000004 of SpamAssassin, but this is code version 3.001000. Maybe you need to use the -C switch, or remove the old config files? Skipping this file at /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/Mail/SpamAssassin/Conf/ line 342.
    To fix this or rather make it ignore the version errors, edit "/opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/Mail/SpamAssassin/Conf/" around line 342 to as follows. This probably isn't the best way to fix it but it seems to make it work right.
    # if we want to allow "require_version 3.0" be good for all
          # "3.0.x" versions:
          ## make sure it's a numeric value
          $value += 0.1;
          ## convert 3.000000 -> 3.0, stay backwards compatible ...  
          $ver =~ s/^(\d+)\.(\d{1,3}).*$/sprintf "%d.%d", $1, $2/e;  
          $value =~ s/^(\d+)\.(\d{1,3}).*$/sprintf "%d.%d", $1, $2/e;
          if ($ver != $value) {
            warn "config: configuration file \"$self->{currentfile}\" requires version ".
                    "$value of SpamAssassin, but this is code version ".
                    "$ver. Maybe you need to use ".
                    "the -C switch, or remove the old config files? ".
                    "Skipping this file";
            $skip_parsing = 1;

    Also, for some reason AWL checks aren't run anymore. I get this error message shown as Amavis is started in debug mode:
    rules: failed to run AWL test, skipping:
            (Can't locate object method "check_from_in_auto_whitelist" via package "Mail::SpamAssassin::PerMsgStatus" at /opt/zimbra/zimbramon/lib/Mail/SpamAssassin/ line 2581.
    I havn't quite figured that one out yet. I assume the AWL test is no longer installed. Of course there are the same errors for razor, pyzor, dcc not being installed.


    Note: This is M2 on Fedora Core 4 using the FC4 build.

    unilogic GOOD FIX. I can now run zmtrainsa without errors. But nothing is getting caught in the Junk folder yet. Running FC4 w/Zimbra FC4 build too. Everything else is running good, even the antivirus. Just no anti-spam. I think its not actually running spamassassin tests on the incoming mail here is what the Show Original on an email message looks like:

    X-Virus-Scanned: amavisd-new at 
    X-Spam-Status: No, hits=0 tagged_above=-10 required=2 autolearn=no
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
    Content-Disposition: inline
    v1agra v1agra
    What does yours show? And do you have any good tests for checking spam detection? Thanks!
