New DCC install with SA 2.61

Thanks for the responses...

I had use_dcc set which is why I presumed I could see DCC being called when
I ran SA in debug mode.

Using the parameters quoted I've traced them in the SA conf help file. 

I suspect that the major reason I'm not seeing DCC_CHECK scores are the
default values for body, fuz1 & fuz2 being set to 999999.

I've turned on dcc_add_header which I suspect will confirm this.

Can I ask what values other use for:

Add the DCC score to all headers (plus a couple other settings) with:

dcc_path /usr/local/bin/dccproc
use_dcc 1
add_header all DCC _DCCB_: _DCCR_

You need to configure SpamAssassin to use DCC.
You'll need the following in your /etc/mail/spamassassin/
dcc_add_header 1 (if you want the dcc header in the email)
dcc_home /var/dcc (location of your dcc)
dcc_timeout 10 (in seconds)

I've installed DCC today and intend to call it from Spamassassin (2.61).

Having followed the extremely simply install instructions in and ensured the firewall is correctly
configured I've run several tests.

Running spamassassin -D -r <mail.file show that DCC is available and that
the spam is reported to DCC.

I've done this as root and as the mail user-id.

When I check cdcc 'info' the counters increment across the various DCC

However when looking through the mail marked as spam I've yet to see any
mail marked as DCC_CHECK and the request counters are not incrementing.

This is leading me to assume that DCC is not working under SA.

Have I missed something, does anything else need setting up?
