Do anyone use amavisd with spamassassin?


I don't know why my amavisd won't add X-Spam-Status header in my email. And it seems not changing spam email subject for me...

Do anyone ever got this problem?

It isn't amavisd's job to do that. Amavis is anti-virus. Spamassassin takes care of the spam. So, concentrate your efforts on configuring Spamassassin.

The way it should work: postfix (or fetchmail) gets the mail and routes it to amavis to check for virii/worms/trojans, then the mail goes to Spamassassin to check against whitelist/blacklist before returning the mail to postfix to distribute.

You can get some downloadable spamassassin blacklists from the spamassassin website.
