Missing local cf file [message #1955] Mon, 13 October 2008 19:37 Go to next message

I have installed a trial version of 3.1.4.2. During the install everything went fine. The service is running and I am filtering e-mail with a 2 IP address setup. This is installed on a Windows 2003 SBS Sp2 server.

However, when I select the Configuration tab and choose the Spam Assassin maintenance wizard I receive an error on about the second screen of the wizard. The error says Can not open file C:\Program Files\No Spam Today!\local.cf mode=read (No such file or directory) Unable to read the configuration file.

I looked and the error is correct. There is no local.cf file on that path. There is a local.cf file in the C:\Program Files\No Spam Today!\sa\ruleset path. However, that file appears to be generated by the wizard but I am unsure of what content it should contain. Does not look like it contains the choices I made during configuration.

Below is data from the NoSpamToday.cf file
[ServerSessionManager\Ports\SMTPPort\Filters\SpamAssassinConfig]

AddressListSameAsPrevious="true"
SpamAssassinRulesetPath="C:\Program Files\No Spam Today!\"

Where is the local.cf file supposed to be located? What is happening to move the file or change the path?

This seems to happen occasionally with NoSpamToday version 2 to version 3 upgrades. Activate "Advanced Settings" in the SpamAssassin Filter Wizard and re-enter "sa\ruleset\" as Configuration Path on the third page. Close the wizard and restart the NoSpamToday service.

made change as directed. I still see no configuration files or ruleset. Do I need to create a directory like C:\Program Files\CleanMail\sa\ruleset? Do I need to download again from somewhere?

The problem starts when upgrades to cleanmail.

Some of the CleanMail installation files have been moved to the user's documents and settings directory.
Windows 6 and later does not like configuration files in the "program files" directory.
