Spamassassin setup with Postfix, Dovecot and Amavisd
I've been trying to get Spamassassin working all day.

I'm running Fedora Core 3, Postfix, Dovecot and amavisd w/ clamav.

Everything seems to be working just fine, with the exception of Spamassassin.

/var/log/maillog :

Mar 20 17:21:33 homer postfix/qmgr[11370]: warning: connect to transport spamassassin: Connection refused
Seems Spamassassin is reporting a problem, which leads me to believe something isn't right in the amavisd.conf file. It's rather long, so if you need to see it, let me know, guess I could post it.

Does anybody have any ideas what needs to be in that file.

I guess it could also be a Spamassassin problem, and need to configure it.

Thanks for your help.

Is spamd running?


ps aux | grep spamd
If not, start him up and then check for errors..

system settings??

i am trying to do the same thing! Would you mind posting your postconf -n and dovecot.conf settings? Are you using a tutorial? I can see my folders but the mail still sits in /var/spool/mail/(user) so don't see it?


update -
I am able to view my inbox email now, after editing the dovecot.conf file;

default_mail_env = mbox:~/Maildir/:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u

and the postfix file;

home_mailbox = mail

....still need to hook up Spamassassin, any suggestions?
