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 ("teergrubing"). 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 fields.

    2015-08-16 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <> 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 afterwards. * 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 dh_prep. * 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 time. * 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 nobody. * save-path.patch: Put saved mail in /var/spool/sa-exim instead of /var/spool/exim. * readme.patch: Other additions to the README file(s). * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.2.

    2010-03-14 - Magnus Holmgren <> sa-exim (4.2.1-13) unstable; urgency=low * Updated Spanish Debconf template translation (Closes: #543310). Submitted by Francisco Javier Cuadrado.
