Re: Looking for newbie friendly Howto Debian 6 + spamassassin 3.3.1

Amavisd-new is used as the "glue" when you run postfix+SA (or any other anti-spam service)+clamAV (or any other antivirus service). For something a bit more serious I would recommend running amavisd-new -it allows to escalate to a more complex layout very easily- but you can also run spamd
+clamav plugin (and so no amavisd-new).

Anyway, I have both setups on production system (one running amavisd-new
and other with spamd), and they're both very easy to configure.

Whatever you decide, I would start from here:


OK, I went ahead and installed amavisd-new and netstat shows listeners even though I haven't changed anything yet.

# netstat -ntap
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0* LISTEN 6244/master tcp 0 0* LISTEN 6123/amavisd (maste tcp 0 0* LISTEN 5467/perl

This doc says master.cf needs edits...


Copy and pasted the edits to the bottom of master.cf and restarted Postfix but it returns: port 10025: Address already in use (so I removed them)

So... I'm not asking to troubleshoot amavisd-new, postfix or spamassassin... but I am still looking for current documentation for Debian 6 + Spamassassin and now Amavisd-new so I can try them out on a Squeeze system.
