Question / Problem
After installing the newest version, the SpamAssassin service stops shortly after starting.
What can I do?
Answer / Solution
To solve this problem, you must first stop the SpamAssassin service, possibly by deactivating the service in the Windows Service Control.
Then you have to move or rename the following files:
These are the old configuration files that cause a problem when converting to a new format.
In addition, the "SpamAssassinServiceController.config" file should be deleted as this was probably created with incorrect values.
This file will then be created again by SpamAssassin the next time it is started.
If you now restart the SpamAssassin service, it should work again without any problems.
