I posted a long investigation of the interaction between
sendmail, spamassassin, and spamass-milter in Fedora
User's group. You can go there to get the full details of
that investigation, if you'd like:
Author: Daniel B. Thurman
Subject: F8 (and FX?]: Sendmail, Spamassassin, and Spamass-Milter issues.
As it seems, it appears that spamass-milter is the crux of the problem:
1) Starting spamass-milter from services (/etc/init.d) fails to create a
2) Starting spamass-milter does not properly set it's socks security
These problems appear for both F8 and F9.
But in any case, starting spamass-milter manually:
# spamass-milter -p '/var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock' -f
But unfortunately the security context is wrong, which is:
srwxr-xr-x root root unconfined_u
Even so, setroubleshoot, says to do the following:
restorecon -v '/var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock',
Changes the security context to:
srwxr-xr-x root root system_u
Which I believe is still incorrect, because it is assigned to
in my opinion, is still not allowing sendmail rights to access this filter.
Whatever the actual problem is., I am still getting errors in the
files saying that spamass-milter fails to run the filter.
For testing, I tried to manually set the socket to: sendmail_var_t or
sendmail_t, but chcon denies permissions to do so. I am unable
to test to see what the security context actually should be.
Please note, that I did not have any more problems with spamass-milter
for awhile, until the latest releases of F8 has broken it. I also note
broke as well.
Can someone please help?
