[CentOS] RE: Logwatch / spamassassin

To answer my own question...

so I edited the file /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

whitelist_from logwatch at localhost.localdomain

Where localhost.localdomain is your hostname.servername

And it worked.

However, I am concerned about spoofing. I would think that mail agent and
spamassassin would have an 'okay, it's a local user' thing going on.

They do not.

On the internet there are 1000s of posts like mine, asking questions about
this and getting no answers. I hope this helps.

Centos 5.2...

Subject: Logwatch / spamassassin

Hi all,

Well it took a while for me to figure it out, but apparently my logwatch no
longer can be mailed locally on my computer as I believe spamassassin is
eating it.

I can send it out to an email address outside my server though. So
spamassassin is only checking incoming I guess.

My question is....how do I...or should I.... Make all local mail go straight
to the boxes and skip spamasassin entirely..

Or.. Whitelist logwatch.

Apparently, I am guessing, all those nifty log reports are so full of
blacklisted urls and ips...well, you get the picure.

Best ways to make this work so I can get it delivered to root again?
