1) first make sure that Spamassassin is working.

% wget 'http://spamassassin.apache.org/gtube/gtube.txt'
% spamassassin -L -x -t < gtube.txt

should give you a report like this:

Content analysis details:   (999.5 points, 5.0 required)
 pts rule name              description
---- ---------------------- --------------------------------------------------
 1.1 L_t_NObody             Addressed to "Undisclosed Recipients" or equivalen
 0.8 L_T_COMBINED           Destination email address suggests this is spam
-2.4 ALL_TRUSTED            Did not pass through any untrusted hosts
1000 GTUBE                  BODY: Generic Test for Unsolicited Bulk Email

That'll confirm that SA is working.

Then, verify that MDF knows about it:

% mimedefang.pl -features

and look for:

SpamAssassin                  : yes

So far so good.

Then, try sending it to yourself:

% sendmail -oi $USER < gtube.txt

You may need to do this from an external site, or cut/paste the body
into an e-mail, and send that from an external site. It depends upon
how MDF and sendmail are configured.

If this doesn't work, look in the maillog for clues.
