How to restart Spamassassin?

    Facing big troubles with spam and email delivery, I try to execute the command /etc/init.d/spamd stop then start.

    Unfortunately, the message queue did not get empty. I removed a few messages manually and finally got the "idea" to restart Spamassassin from the Plesk control Panel.

    Miracle! The queue starts to get empty and the messages are now delivered!

    So could someone :
    1. let me know the difference between the 2 ways of restarting Spamassassin?
    2. if spamassassin stopped to work (apparentely), where can I find info about the cause of the problem?

    Thanks in advance.
