    Question How to Sendmail + Spamassassin on SuSE11?

    I'm amazed I can't find any previous posts.

    All the cookbooks I've found require spamass-milter but I can't find a version anywhere that will run on OpenSuSE 11 (There is a version for OpenSuSE 10.x).

    So, is there some new recommended way to do this without spamass-milter or can this module be found anywhere?

    TIA.

    Twofold answer:

    a) The current CW in the openSuSE community has it that Sendmail is Bad(TM)
    and everyone should use Postfix instead. I don't agree, in case you didn't
    notice - there are situations where one or the other is better suited - but
    that's beside the point here. As a consequence, Sendmail support in
    openSuSE is deteriorating and may have reached the point where you'll
    be better off compiling Sendmail yourself instead of using the SuSE
    provided RPM. In which case you'll of course also compile spamass-milter
    yourself. Problem solved. :-)

    b) Personally I recommend MIMEDefang as an alternative. It integrates not
    only SpamAssassin, but also ClamAV (or any other virus scanner) into your
    mailflow, so it replaces two milters. (spamass-milter and clamav-milter)
    In addition, it provides a freely extendable Perl script for any
    additional mail content checks or processing you can imagine.
