spamassassin ignores required hits, is scoring spam to low, MAPS not working

    hi,

    system: debian 3.1, spamassassin 3.03

    my whole spamassassin/MAPS config looks broken somehow:

    1) although i changed alle hits_required entries in the psa db, table sa_conf to 5 the hits_required entry in mail headers stays at 7

    2) definite spam mails are scored at around 2-3 - on my old server with a by hand spamassassin installation they've been well above 5. i had the rules_du_jour package installed - is this advisable/neccessary and how to do this best on a plesk server?

    3) i entred sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org into the maps config but the testmails from spamhaus are getting thru.

    as i see it, debian handles all these things a bit different then the stock RH? installs - so i'm interrested in reports from debian users especially if they have all these things working before i contact the plesk support,

    Have you checked your logfiles? Does your maillog seem to be correct? No errors or suspect entries about SpamAssassin?

    Is your inetd/xinetd configuration updated correct with the MAPS settings?

    nothing unusual, spamassassin kicks in and scans the messages - but the score is to low for effective spamfiltering
    this is hard to answer for me because i can't really see where MAPS filtering should be in the chain (remeber it's a debian system, not RH). i have in /etc/inetd.conf:

    problem is, my old qmail installation (self made follwoing life with qmail) used tcpserver so i'm a bit lost how plesk is chaining the mail transfer process. any insights?
