Spamassassin backport

I only seem to blog about spam!

Task: Plesk 8.0 - improve spam filtering

Plesk 8.0 on a Debian Sarge box comes with Spamassassin 3.0.3
I wanted to installed a more recent version along with Pyzor, Razor etc.

So, I needed to install spamassassin from the backports repro:
Alter sources.list...
deb sarge main
deb sarge/updates main contrib
deb sarge-backports main
Then update the repros and install the later version of spamassassin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -t sarge-backports install spamassassin
Once this is done, follow the on-screen instructions and then the previous blogged installation of Pyzor and Razor.

Sounds simple... took ages to find out how to do it!
