Hello

Just if someone other does have the same issue:

Modify /etc/default/spamassassin

Code: Select all

OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children 5 --helper-home-dir"

to

Code: Select all

OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children 5 --helper-home-dir -u debian-spamd"

also create folder and set permission:

Code: Select all

mkdir -p /nonexistent/.spamassassin
chown debian-spamd: /nonexistent/.spamassassin


last but not least restart spamassassin

Code: Select all

service spamassassin restart


Regards
Raphael

Basically the error are the permissions on: //.spamassassin/user_prefs

To fix it follow the next steps:

– Create the user spamd, in order to avoid to run spamassassin with the user nobody (ignore errors that folders exist):

Code: Select all

groupadd -g 1001 spamd
useradd -u 1001 -g spamd -s /sbin/nologin -d /var/lib/spamassassin spamd
mkdir /var/lib/spamassassin
chown spamd:spamd /var/lib/spamassassin



– Edit the file /etc/exim/exim.conf.

Code: Select all

nano /etc/exim/exim.conf



Change the line:
spam = nobody:true/defer_ok
to

Code: Select all

      spam           = spamd:true/defer_ok



– Restart exim and spamassassin

Code: Select all

service exim restart
service spamassassin restart



After awhile that verify that the files bayes_seen, bayes_toks and user_prefs exists on the spamd home (In this case /var/lib/spamassassin/.spamassassin)

Hi,

Is this still an issue with the latest VestaCP?

I get this, and no emails are getting through:

Code: Select all

I edited:

/usr/local/vesta/install/rhel/6/exim/exim.conf

(but there are 5 different exim files, so I'm not sure if that is the right one??)

I see this in the /var/log/exim4/rejectlog file:

Code: Select all

...but in mainlog, I get:
