SA-Exim integrates SpamAssassin filtering at SMTP time with the Exim
v4 MTA. It may be used to reject incoming mails before they arrive, or
even to tie up the sender's resources by slowing down the connection
Most of the functionality of this package can also be achieved
using the exiscan ACL conditions built into the "heavy" Exim daemon,
exim-daemon-heavy. Use this package if you need SpamAssassin's
report_safe feature, or if you want to have easier control over the
header fields added, without using the report template to add multiple

sa-exim (4.2.1-14build1) wily; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild for exim4-localscanapi-2.0.
2011-12-25 - Magnus Holmgren <>
sa-exim (4.2.1-14) unstable; urgency=low
* Updated Danish and Dutch Debconf template translations (Closes:
#608447, #634314).
* Drop the defaults for SAspamcHost and SAspamcPort, deferring to spamc
as to what the defaults will be if those options are not set in
sa-exim.conf (Closes: #506571).
* The "nobody" user and "nogroup" group should not own files. Therefore,
create /var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets with Debian-exim as owner on new
installations and run greylistclean as Debian-exim by default. Don't
change ownership of already existing /var/spool/sa-exim or
/var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets, since the local admin may have different
preferences, but give the Debian-exim group the write permission it
needs if /var/spool/sa-exim/tuplets is owned by "nobody" and spamd
runs as the calling user (Closes: #563492). Add documentation to
README.Debian and remove recommendation to run spamd as "nobody" from
README and README.greylisting.
* Some tidying of debian/rules and the packaging in general:
* Add build-arch and build-indep targets.
* Remove configure target; it's not a mandatory target.
* Remove install target and use dh_install (and dh_lintian) to put the
files in the staging directory.
* Replace /var/spool/exim with /var/spool/sa-exim in the Debian patch
instead of using sed.
* Pass SUFF='' to the makefile instead of renaming
* Put our version of the crontab file in debian/greylistclean.cron.d
and install it using dh_installcron.
* Upgrade to Debhelper compat level 7. Replace dh_clean -k with
* Switch to source package format 3.0 (quilt), splitting the Debian
patch as follows:
* api-limitations.patch: Changes needed because Exim exports only the 
symbols that are part of the official API.
* spamc-args.patch: Changes related to the arguments sent to spamc.
* grey-clean-sender.patch: Simplify the sender address so that senders
using VERP, SRS, etc. hopefully won't be greylisted each and every
* grey-only-ipv4.patch: Bail out if a non-IPv4 address is encountered.
* improved-default-conf.patch: General improvements (in my opinion) of
the default sa-exim.conf.
* spamd-not-nobody.patch: Strike the recommendation that spamd run as
* save-path.patch: Put saved mail in /var/spool/sa-exim instead of
* readme.patch: Other additions to the README file(s).
* Update Standards-Version to 3.9.2.
