RelayPlugin stopped working

I'm running eFa-4.0.4
The RelayCountry plugin was working great, then stopped working for me. (This was quite some months ago - I didn't have time to work on it at the time, so I just set all scores near zero.)

The plugin seems to work flawlessly when calling spamassassin from the command line on a specific queue file, but not when mail is flowing through the system. It does not add the X-Spam-Relay-Countries header, nor does it insert the appropriate matching rules to the spam report.

Here is the config in /etc/mail/spamassassin/

Code: Select all

  ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry
    country_db_type GeoIP2
    country_db_path /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb
    add_header all Relay-Country _RELAYCOUNTRY_
    header        RC_BAD          X-Spam-Relay-Countries =~ /(IN|CN|RU)/
    describe      RC_BAD          Relayed through a prohibited country at some point
    score         RC_BAD          0.1
    header        RC_FIRST_USCA   X-Spam-Relay-Countries =~ /(^US)/
    describe      RC_FIRST_USCA   First relay is in United States/Canada
    score         RC_FIRST_USCA   -0.1
    header        RC_ANY_USCA     X-Spam-Relay-Countries =~ /(US)/
    describe      RC_ANY_USCA     At least one relay is in United States/Canada
    score         RC_ANY_USCA     -0.1
    meta          RC_NOT_ANY_USCA !RC_ANY_USCA
    describe      RC_NOT_ANY_USCA No relays are in United States
    score         RC_NOT_ANY_USCA 0.1
    meta          RC_NOT_FIRST_US !RC_FIRST_USCA
    describe      RC_NOT_FIRST_US First trusted relay is not in the US
    score         RC_NOT_FIRST_US 0.1
  endif Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry
I made sure the plugin is enabled. From /etc/mail/spamassassin:

Code: Select all

loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry

GeoIP DB is updating fine:

Code: Select all

  # ls -l /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb /var/www/html/mailscanner/temp/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb
  lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root    root         52 Sep 20  2020 /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb -> /var/www/html/mailscanner/temp/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb
  -rw-r--r--. 1 php-fpm php-fpm 3977956 Mar 24 04:02 /var/www/html/mailscanner/temp/GeoLite2-Country.mmdb
When I send a test email from an account on Protonmail (in Switzerland), mailwatch shows the correct country info, and mailscanner seems to insert the matching mail rules in the spam report:

But that's not the case. If the X-Spam-Relay-Countries header is not there, RC_ANY_USCA will be false, and since RC_NOT_ANY_USCA is a meta rule that's simply an inversion of RC_ANY_USCA, then RC_NOT_ANY_USCA will be true. Here is a message from the US, and RC_NOT_ANY_USCA appears.

But Spamassassin is clearly working properly, because it works perfectly from the command line. So the only explanation that makes sense to me is that the X-Spam-Relay-Countries header is not being inserted into the version of the message that Mailscanner is looking at.

What am I missing?

I believe you are right, MailScanner isn't incorporating new headers during SA scan. I am taking a look.
