spamassassin.exe must not be in the xmail folder!
And it is not spamassassin.exe, it is spamassassin.BAT and it must be in the Perl/Bin folder

The SA folder in xmail is only for logs and temp.... nothing else.

I got compiled SA from here
QUOTE

Also, you can download  SpamAssassin for Windows (Win32), a native Windows build of spamassassin and spamd/spamc command-line tools. (Especially useful on mail servers.)

I downloaded the SpamAssassin Win32 version but it didnt come with a spamassassin.bat file.

Anybody able to post the contents or a link to one I can use?

After Spamassassin is correctly installed it creates a file called spamassassin.BAT in the Perl/bin Folder

If you have followed the instruction posted by me in the 1st page of this post then you will have a spamassassin.BAT file.

The version that is explained here is the "RAW" SA and not the Compiled SA (for windows) that is discribed in the last few post in this topic. The links and discription posted by Yukka

My make process failed at the part where you config perl using the ppm install processes.

I dont know enough about perl or compiling things, so I went with the precompiled version for windows.

Having said that, I understand that this thread was started with the idea that the individual admins would go the compile route.

Would it be prudent to suggest at this time that maybe another thread dealing with the pre-compiled spamassassin downloads be created by someone? Anyone with experience doing this with the pre-compiled version?

The process i discribe is straight forward. If you follow the instructions then you should not run into any problems.
Did u download nmake15.exe and renamed it to nmake.exe and copied it to the perl/bin folder? If this is not done your will have problems.

I also assume u running htis on win32 platform?

I have followed this prosedure and installed this on XP ,2000 and 2003 server with no hassels.

You can start a new thread for the precompield version and place all your Q's there.

Oh...and if u have hassels with ppm install from the normal DOS prompt you can click on:
Start>Programs>ActiveState Active Perl > Perl Package Manager

There you can just past the commands for the PPM Upgrades discribed in the "How To"

None of the following commands worked for me:

ppm install Win32-Registry-File
ppm install Net-DNS
ppm install DB_File
ppm install Time-HiRes
ppm install IP-Country
ppm install Mail-SPF-Query

All returned a "no suitable installation target found for package ..." error.

I did get and place and rename where appropriate the nmake files before I tried the ppm installs.

Might be time to run a new thread.

See my Previous post on another way to do ppm installs.

Try to run:
ppm install Win32-Registry-File
ppm install Net-DNS
ppm install DB_File
ppm install Time-HiRes
ppm install IP-Country
ppm install Mail-SPF-Query

And if that does not work in the PPM Manager, the just remove the ppm in front and use only the install command:

install Win32-Registry-File
install Net-DNS
install DB_File
install Time-HiRes
install IP-Country
install Mail-SPF-Query

That should do it

Thanx

BooT

I used the package manager as suggested and got the same error with the first install package.

When I did a search for it and the others, not all them were listed. I tried the ones I could find and got the same error anyway.

I am open to other suggestions.

What OS you running. What persion of Perl did you use. Was it the MSI Installer package? or the stand alone?

I use Active Perl 5.8 MSI installer package.

The PC you doing this on, does it have internet access. PPM Install upgrades are downloaded from the internet.

If all else fails, Uninstall Perll and reinstall it.
your problem is with Perl.

I am using :
ActivePerl-5.8.6.811-MSWin32-x86-122208.msi

As far as i know and if i read the documentaion right of Spamassassin then the later versions of active perl does not work with SA.

That is why i use ActivePerl-5.8.6.811-MSWin32-x86-122208.msi

That might put a damper on things.

I am in the process of removing the current version of Perl and will see if I can find the version you are indicating.
