Thanks for the tips Ron. I'm certainly in agreement, it seems like
mimedefang isn't using the same configuration. I've got two files,
/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and
Using spamassassin -D --lint I see it loads both files. Looking at
/usr/local/bin/mimedefang.pl I see it looks in the following:


It also uses if, elsif so it stops at soon as it finds one,
/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-mimedefang.cf, in my case. Local.cf has the
custom scores and rules, sa-mimedefang.cf has the bayes and
whitelisting stuff. But it seems like mimedefang isn't using either.
Is there a debugging mode to use on mimedefang to see exactly which
configuration files it's loading?
