The Spam Assassin thing came up, and fixes discussed here in this forum. But here is a summary ..
Find this directory
Inside is a file called local.conf. Inside it says:
# this is the right place to customize your installation of SpamAssassin
# See 'perldoc Mail:
pamAssassin::Conf for details of what can be tweaked
Uncomment rewrite_subject and set the value to 1.
Now you must restart spam assassin and exim -- but here is the trick!
If you use WHM to restart exim ... IT DOES NOT RESTART SPAMASSASSIN!
You'd think it would, but it does not.
So, restart exim from a command line like this --
service exim restart
This will restart spamd along with exim, and your new config line will be loaded, and spam assassin will go back to marking the subject lines.
PS: You can also set this factor in each user's account, see spamassassin.org doc for details.
