Thanks for that.  I added that option to the startup script and restarted
spamc (service spamass-milter restart) then killed spamd (service
spamassassin stop).

Oddly enough, messages are still being delivered by sendmail!!!  I then
checked the process list and saw the following:

/usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m5 -H -x -q -u spambucket -r /var/run/spamd.pid
spamass-milter -p /var/run/spamass.sock -f -x

Further reading of `man spamc' revealed that option `-f' is non-existent (at
least not mentioned in my spamc man pages); there's only a `-F' option - so
why do I have this option that appears to do nothing for me?  Could it be
that it was meant to be `-F'?

Well, I removed that option from the startup script and on trying to start
the service, it hang indefinitely!  I then added `-F' in its place and I got
the following output:

          Uses 'defaultuser' if there are multiple recipients.
   -x: pass email address through alias and virtusertable expansion.
   -- spamc args: pass the remaining flags to spamc.
                                                           [FAILED]

This is when I realized that the man page falsely states what the `-x'
option does, and as seen above, there isn't even a -F option as stated in
the man pages.  From the above, it is clear what `-x' does:

-x: pass email address through alias and virtusertable expansion.

I also understand why when I killed the Ctrl-C'd from the hang session, I
got the [OK] message; the process was not forking to the background!

So, is it that I have a real old version of spamass-milter?  Odd thing is
that I cannot find a newer version!!!


Puzzled,
AK.
