Im unsing Spamassassin 3.1.3 on a FreeBSD System. Since the last 
portupgrade, I had the problem that Spamassassin didn't seem to use DCC 
any more. I tested a spam mail manually with spamassassin -D  < 
"spammail", and the result was, that spamassassin got a timeout after 
waiting for dcc for 8 seconds.

Spamassassin invokes dccproc with options -H -x 0 -a "ip-adress". I 
tested it manually with dccproc -H -x 0 -a "ip-adress" < spammail and 
got a reply from the dcc server after about 3 Minutes. Trying the same 
without -a "ip-adress" returned a result after a few seconds.

Is this a bug, or why does it take so long to get an answer from the dcc
