The following is pulled from the RELNOTES from the debian-unstable branch.

I'm just a wee bit confused about the two statements in this section and the section in README.Debian.

Is razor in unstable (v2.20) compatable?

How do you turn spamassassin back on, if it isn't on already?

How do you turn razor on for amavis? ( I understand that the amavisd has assumed the responsibility of network communications rather than spamassassin - razor )


amavis for Debian
This version of amavis is based on the amavisd-new branch of amavis. See
<URL:http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/> for details.

It now has support for spamassassin built in. However
spamassassin support is now disabled and cannot be easily
reenabled. This is because the version of razor in Debian
is incompatable.



Changes since amavisd-new-20020224:

- supports Mail::SpamAssassin and Vipul's Razor (1.20 required)
for spam checking (but not for modifying mail body - only add headers
  and/or address extension, or reject/discard/quarantine spam).

  NOTE: spam checks are off in the default amavisd setup.
        Copy file ./amavis/amavisd.in.all to ./amavis/amavisd.in
        before running ./configure and make, to use the
        spam-check-enabled version!

Amavisd calls Mail::SpamAssassin directly, avoiding the need to set up
  spamc/spamd or to chain filters. This is more efficient, one daemon
  less to worry about, although maybe less flexible for some taste.
  At the moment the SA per-user database is not used. Feel free to
  experiment with it and let me know what you came up with.

Beware of geeks bearing graft.
