Subject Re: Recently inherited a mail gateway, need some assistance
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2012 17:26:31 GMT

Took a loot in /etc/init.d and found nothing spam related. I did a find /
-name "spam*" and found a few different instances of spamd in
/root/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.1/ and /usr/local/bin, but no spampd results.
Would I restart the spamd process or Spamassassin altogether?
