Well, thanks to searching many posts, I finally have SA running and RBLs being checked. The really interesting thing is I cannot find spamd running anywhere. Kinda goes like this:

-Server reboot (ugly fix for the "stuck" socket)

-Send myself email from external server. Check header and it indicates "spam-scanned" with Exim 4.24. This would be the spamc filter is my guess.

-execute /usr/local/bin/spamd -d

-check for spamd process: there is none. Send email from external server and headers include the Spam-Assassin headers.

-execute /usr/local/bin/spamd &

-luca# Could not create INET socket: Address already in use IO::Socket::INET: Address already in use

-add script with start/stop commands for spamd in rc.d

-reboot server

-check for spamd process: there is none.

-execute /usr/local/bin/spamd start
luca# Could not create INET socket: Address already in use IO::Socket::INET: Address already in use

-execute /usr/local/bin/spamd stop
luca# Could not create INET socket: Address already in use IO::Socket::INET: Address already in use

-Send email from external server and headers include Spam-Assassin headers.

It all seems to be working but there never is a visible process. And no way to get past the socket errors...ever.
Anybody else run into this or have an idea?

Thanks!

I was wondering the same thing, however I did eventually notice that the line in the PS list looked like this:

... /usr/local/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/spamd

instead of just spamd.

Do you have something like that?

I however have not noticed the SA entries in my mail headers...
