Description Aurélien Requiem 2010-01-06 11:51:55 UTC

there's a "buzzing" bug in spamassassin that add over 3 points for email with date in 2010 and after. This obviously scores clean mail and could lead to false positive.

The problem is already know and fixed in the upstream.

This bug to backport the fix in gentoo as long as no new version is available.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. send a mail with a date equal of above 2010
2. the mail will be scored with +3.44 point and match the  rule FH_DATE_PAST_20XX

Actual Results:  
depending on other scoring your mail could be considered as spam when it's not.

Expected Results:  
the mail should match the FH_DATE_PAST_20XX rule 

Please, have look there as the problem is clearly known

Thank you.
