Name        : spamassassin
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 3.4.0
Release     : 4.fc20
URL         : http://spamassassin.apache.org/
Summary     : Spam filter for email which can be invoked from mail delivery agents
Description :
SpamAssassin provides you with a way to reduce if not completely eliminate
Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM) from your incoming email.  It can
be invoked by a MDA such as sendmail or postfix, or can be called from
a procmail script, .forward file, etc.  It uses a genetic-algorithm
evolved scoring system to identify messages which look spammy, then
adds headers to the message so they can be filtered by the user's mail
reading software.  This distribution includes the spamd/spamc components
which create a server that considerably speeds processing of mail.

To enable spamassassin, if you are receiving mail locally, simply add
this line to your ~/.procmailrc:

To filter spam for all users, add that line to /etc/procmailrc
(creating if necessary).

Update Information:

Fix versioning on initial rules. Added a note in readme about -d option.
Update to 3.4.0 upstream release with more rules and checks. Also fixes various bugs.

NOTE: if you have modified your /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin file, you will need to remove the '-d' option from it or move the .rpmnew file in place. This update includes a move to not use the -d flag. If you have it in place it will cause spamassassin to not run properly.
