Fyi About Spamassassin - New Bug

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI to everyone using SpamAssassin.


Users on my domains have noticed a number of bounced emails lately, and they'd get a response showing this:


An error was detected while processing a file of BSMTP input.


The error message was:


421 Lost incoming connection


The SMTP transaction started in line 0.

The error was detected in line 3.

0 previous messages were successfully processed.

The rest of the batch was abandoned.

421 Lost incoming connection

Transaction started in line 0

Error detected in line 3


This has been linked to a recently discovered bug in SA [http://bugzilla.spamassassin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4246]. TCH is aware of the problem and have told me they are waiting for Cpanel to update with a fix for it.




I bring this up because you might also have bounced emails without knowing it. It doesn't seem to bounce ALL emails...and it is hard to spot if you aren't looking for it. I just thought it was worth sharing with everyone so you can keep an eye out for problems.
