Upgrading to SpamAssassin 3.3.x

Stewart -

PROBLEM
I want to upgrade my Atmail SpamAssassin installation to the newer version of SpamAssassin.

ENVIRONMENT

  • On-Premise Server + WebMail Installations: Version 6.0 > Current Version

CAUSE
The newer version of SpamAssassin contains many upgrades - up to, and including DKIM checks, an improved SQL settings implementation. You may want to upgrade to this version.

Upgrading is easy; just go through the following steps

RESOLUTION

  1. Download SpamAssassin from:
    http://spamassassin.apache.org/downloads.cgi
    wget "http://apache.mirror.aussiehq.net.au//spamassassin/source/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.1.tar.gz"
  2. Extract
    tar xvfz Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.1.tar.gz -C /usr/local/atmail/server_source/
    cd /usr/local/atmail/server_source/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.1
  3. Rename your previous SpamAssassin directory.
    mv /usr/local/atmail/spamassassin /usr/local/atmail/spamassassin.3.2
  4. Install the NetAddr::IP module.
    perl -MCPAN -e 'install NetAddr::IP'
  5. Install.
    perl Makefile.PL  PREFIX=/usr/local/atmail/spamassassin/  && make && make install
  6. Move the local.cf and sqlsettings.cf files.
    cp /usr/local/atmail/spamassassin.3.2/etc/sqlsettings.cf
    /usr/local/atmail/spamassassin.3.2/etc/local.cf
    /usr/local/atmail/spamassassin/etc/mail/spamassassin/
  7. Restart services.
    /etc/init.d/atmailserver restart
  8. Congratulations. Now you have SpamAssassin 3.3.x. Credits to the Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/) for making a tremendously amazing piece of software.
