Lately I noticed a bizar increase in spam, despite running Spam Assassin.

Thought I'd check my Spam Assassin setup and found this message in DA.

Code:
Unable to setup spamassassin

Spamd is not running on your system.
Click Here to learn how to enable it
I've tried:
Code:
# /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 15
It seems to run quite long, and then the console get's back no message at all.

Then I did:
Code:
# service exim restart
Which gives me:
Code:
Shutting down exim: 
Starting exim: 
spamd: no process found
I've decided to redo my steps from here

But after setup, same problem still exists. Configurations are still in place yet no spamd.

What would be the best next step .... ?

Thanks for your reply !

Code:
# spamd -V
SpamAssassin Server version 3.3.2
  running on Perl 5.10.1
Mar 10 10:09:35.715 [1426] error: Socket version 1.95 required--this is only version 1.82 at /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 92.
Mar 10 10:09:35.715 [1426] error: Can't locate IO/Socket/IP.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl) at /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 106.
  with SSL support (IO::Socket::SSL 1.84)
  with zlib support (Compress::Zlib 2.06)
Code:
# sa-update
That last command didn't show any error or notification.

So, from what I can gather, it needs a Socket version upgrade ...

Just followed:

http://forum.directadmin.com/showthread.php?t=43935

And updated CPAN and so,

Code:
# spamd -V
SpamAssassin Server version 3.4.0
  running on Perl 5.10.1
  with SSL support (IO::Socket::SSL 1.967)
  with zlib support (Compress::Zlib 2.064)
Seems to be okay now.

However:
Code:
# service exim restart
Shutting down exim: 
Starting exim: 
spamd: no process found
*edit*
When I restart Exim it still gives the Spamd error. However; if I do this:

Code:
# /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 15
Spamd works from within DA and I can set Spam Assassin settings.

Restarting Exim however makes spamd go down again.
