Urgh no! I realized after I'd last posted on the list that that commandline
doesn't actually do anything to filter my spam... grr. :(
I then went on to try fixing the problem as quoted above using pkg_rmleaves
(ran pkg_rmleaves, removed p5-Mail-Spamassassin and all it's dependencies,
reinstalled SA), but this did not fix the problem for me either.
After that I reverted SA back to the old version just to stem the flow of
spam for now until either a fix is released or I get the chance to look into
FYI if anyone wants to revert back to the old version of the SA port, what I
1. cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portdowngrade/ (fantastic tool!)
2. make install clean
3. portdowngrade -s:pserver:anoncvs at anoncvs.fr.FreeBSD.org:/home/ncvs
mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin -o (when prompted, login using password 'anoncvs')
4. Select '5' when prompted (double check this though, pick the version
of SA you want to revert back to).
5. Opt to revert back to that version in portdowngrade when prompted.
6. portupgrade -f p5-Mail-SpamAssassin
7. Start SA.
That should hopefully have the effect of reverting back to the old version
of SA and allow you to start the daemon without the error message.
All the best.
