I want to relay my e-mails, but I want the Mail-Relay to check the relayed mails for spam. I am using Debian 6.0, Postfix 2.7.1 and Amavis.

Headers of the messages look like this at the moment - it looks like amavis is handling the message but does not scan it =(:

X-spam-status: No, score=0 tagged_above=-999 required=6.31 tests=[none] autolearn=ham Received: from mx.domain.org ([]) by localhost (mx.domain.org []) (amavisd-new, port 10024) with ESMTP id c1bRJ7muUUN0 for ; Mon, 7 Mar 2011 17:42:35

Any suggestions?

  • Do you have a virus scanner installed? amavis doesn't do the scanning itself, it needs a scanner to handle it. Mar 7, 2011 at 17:11
  • SpamAssasin is installed

  • You would not get the 'X-spam-status' in the message if it was not filtered through spamassassin. It appears that the messages are being checked. What is your question?

  • JeffG - tests=[none] indicates that Amavisd added those headers per default, but tests=[none] means that spamassassin was NOT scanning the message.

Issue solved. The Debian-Packages were corrupt, bug-report sent.

  • so can you post the bug-report link, and what you did to fix the issue?
