Post subject:  Spamassassin sa-update complains about not installed modules

Spamassassin is a perl based mail filter. It requires serveral perl modules, as you can see below.

At installation and startup time, spamassassin does not request all of them, but sa-update the spamassassin update tool does:

Code:
# sa-update -D

The solution is to install the required perl module manually: perl -MCPAN -e "install Mail::DomainKeys"
Code:
# perl -MCPAN -e "install Mail::DomainKeys"
Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for CPAN.pm due to
some missing parameters...



The following questions are intended to help you with the
configuration. The CPAN module needs a directory of its own to cache
important index files and maybe keep a temporary mirror of CPAN files.
This may be a site-wide or a personal directory.

I see you already have a  directory
    /root/.cpan
Shall we use it as the general CPAN build and cache directory?

<cpan_home>
..............AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS...................


And the result is:
Code:
# sa-update -D 2>&1 | grep Domain
[28287] dbg: diag: module installed: Mail::DomainKeys, version 1.0
