This might sound like a stupid question but I am going to ask anyways and explain why I am asking. I apologize in advance that this will be a lengthy post.
So we are currently still using SM Enterprise 15.7.6844. On our setup we have a remote spamassassin server setup and I am wanting to see the email headers that the Remote Spamassassin server writes to the message. I want to be sure emails are scored properly and what rules were triggered from the Remote SpamAssassin server. Currently I am only seeing the email headers that Smarter mail writes. So I was going under the assumption that since we have the SpamAssassin Based pattern matching turned on that maybe it had something to do with that. So I shut it off and I also double checked the settings for each in regards to header log level, this is what they are currently set to:
Header Log level: Score with test names and descriptions
SpamAssassin Based Pattern:
Header Log level: Score only
So with that said, I should see the full header information that the Remote SpamAssassin installation writes and not what SmarterMail is writing. I even went as far as unchecking the SpamAssassin-Based Pattern Matching and I still only get header information from SmarterMail and never get the email headers that my remote spamassassin would write. I even stopped and restarted the SmarterMail service to make sure it took my changes. No change at all, i still get the SmarterMail headers. I will provide a snippet below of what i am talking about.
So I found where the header information is written from SmarterMail, it's under the SmarterTools -> SmarterMail -> Service -> SAData -> 10_default_prefs.cf file on the server itself. So no matter whether the SpamAssassin Based matching is on or off, SmarterMail just keeps on writing it's own headers and ignores the settings I have set under Security -> AntiSpam Administration.
Here's a snippet of what I am talking about:
X-SmarterMail-Spam: SORBS - Spam, SORBS 06 - Recent, Reverse DNS Lookup [Passed], SpamAssassin -4 [raw: -2], SPF_Pass, DK_None, DKIM_Pass, Custom Rules 
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: Spam detection software, running on the system "XXXXXX",
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: has NOT identified this incoming email as spam. The original
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: message has been attached to this so you can view it or label
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: similar future email. If you have any questions, see
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: XXXXXXXX for details.
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: Content preview: Test w/SpamAssassin Based Pattern matching off. Test w/SpamAssassin
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: Based Pattern matching off. [...]
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: Content analysis details: (-2.0 points, 5.0 required)
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: pts rule name description
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: ---- ---------------------- --------------------------------------------------
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: -0.0 SPF_PASS SPF: sender matches SPF record
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: 0.0 FREEMAIL_FROM Sender email is commonly abused enduser mail provider
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: -1.9 BAYES_00 BODY: Bayes spam probability is 0 to 1%
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: [score: 0.0000]
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: 0.0 HTML_MESSAGE BODY: HTML included in message
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: -0.1 DKIM_VALID_AU Message has a valid DKIM or DK signature from author's
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: -0.1 DKIM_VALID Message has at least one valid DKIM or DK signature
X-SmarterMail-SpamDetail: 0.1 DKIM_SIGNED Message has a DKIM or DK signature, not necessarily valid
X-SmarterMail-TotalSpamWeight: 0 (Trusted Sender - User)
So with the above example, SmarterMail recognizes that I shutoff the SpamAssassin-Based Pattern Matching, but still writes the full headers anyways and ignores the setting I specified.
This is example is what I should expect to see (this is a test email from a different SpamAssassin setup):
X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=8.8 required=5.1 tests=BAYES_99,BAYES_999, DKIM_ADSP_NXDOMAIN,FROM_NOT_REPLY,FSL_BULK_SIG,NO_DNS_FOR_FROM,PYZOR_CHECK, RCVD_IN_RP_RNBL,RCVD_IN_SORBS_DUL,RDNS_DYNAMIC autolearn=no version=3.3.2

X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.3.2 (2011-06-06) on electronicart.hu
So with all that said, any idea why SmarterMail just continues to write it's own header information and ignores the settings specified under the AntiSpam Administration?
