Yes, Spamassassin-milter is checking incoming mail and some few messages are getting encapsulated
into safe-report mails (though I don’t have any of those in the last 24 hours, I never have
very many since I am aggressive about deleting a lot of spam before it even gets o the Junk

It is possible this is hitting on specific mails (ones too large, perhaps?) or that it is
a new problem since I updated some packages earlier this week.

Evidently these ar the default flags:

# Set defaults
: ${spamd_enable:="NO"}
: ${spamd_flags="-c -Q -u spamd -H /var/spool/spamd"}

Seems like a strange set of defaults to me.

(bayes files in /car/spool/spamd/s,pamassassion/ are getting at least touched)
