Zhuang,

Just an FYI in all installations of iredmail-0.7.4 on CentOS 6, SpamAssassin is the ONLY service that is not set to start on boot.

Everytime the system is rebooted I have to manually type "service spamassassin start"

I am sure this can be fixed with a "chkconfig spamassassin on" but not sure if this was done intentionally or not.

Service spamd should be turn off by default in iRedMail, because SpamAssassin will be invoked by Amavisd.

spamassassin does not get invoked my AmavisD properly...

Every time I restart I have to manually start it.

I noticed this by doing a ps -ef and didnt see spamassassin running.

Happens every time on CentOS 6.2 btw. I have a VPS I use for testing and have been tearing down the image and rebuilding just to make sure it isnt OS related. This is def a centos 6.2 issue with the software. Amavisd is not starting spamassassin

1) spamd should be turn off in iRedMail.
2) Amavisd invokes SpamAssassin directly for anti-spam scanning, not through spamd.

Just want to repeat, it's working as designed.

Okay no problem, thanks for the update Zhang.

Is there a way to verify that spamd is running? I know its invoked by amavisd but it doesnt show up as a running process at all in ps -ef.... I havent seen it spawn any processes and then die. I am not exactly sure how it works so I figured you might have an idea
