How To Enable Spamassassin Logging to a file

| 00:24:56 13.05.2013

Enabling logging of Spamassassin actions on a server with DirectAdmin is rather simple, so here is how to do that.

Update /etc/init.d/exim and replace

if [ -e /usr/bin/spamd ]; then /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 15 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null; fi


if [ -e /usr/bin/spamd ]; then /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 5 -s /var/log/exim/spamd.log -r /var/run/ 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null; fi

and re-start exim. To test see:

# ps aux | grep spam
root      2494  0.0  1.5 257008 61264 ?        SN   May12   0:21 spamd child
root      3902  0.0  1.4 254980 58744 ?        SN   May12   0:06 spamd child
root     13854  0.0  1.4 252108 56260 ?        SNs  May12   0:26 /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 5 -s /var/log/exim/spamd.log -r /var/run/
root     18952  0.0  0.0 103308   844 pts/3    SN+  00:21   0:00 grep spam

You might need to create /var/log/exim/spamd.log prior to exim restart and take care of it's rotation.
