Hi Will,

I may join in with this again as I now have amavisd/spamassassin back up 
and running on my mail server. I've been having a quick look at tweaking 
SA configuration so might write some more on that and I can also check 
the SELinux stuff as needed.

WRT testing, take a look in the amavisd documentation in 
/usr/share/doc/amavisd-new-2.5.4/test-messages. The README describes how 
to inject the supplied spam and virus test messages which may be worth 

sendmail -i your-address at example.com <sample-virus-simple.txt

or you could use your own spam messages if you have any for testing 
(I've been playing with testing DNSBLs and URIBLs).

Funnily enough, I saw your updates but SpamAssassin blocked and 
quarantined the auto-notification email from the Wiki because it 
contained the gtube string you'd added giving it a score of 1000! At 
least I know my SA is working :)
