Systems Administration Notes.

Spamassassin Whitelist.

Spamassassin Whitelist.

When updating SpamAssassin configuration files, particularly local.cf, in /etc/mail/spamassassin I find I have been ommitting to notify the spam daemon spamd recently.

This then is a note to self to remember to find the parent spamd process and send a signal 1, which will cause it to reread the configuration files.

In reality, as I try to maintain all configuration through an admin box under RCS control, I need to update my Makefile.

vi /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
kill -1 ‘ps -ef|awk ’/usrlocalbinspamd/ {if($3 == 1){print $2}}’‘
