First, check that Procmail is installed as you MDA.

If so, at a console prompt enter:

service spamassassin status

 

If spamassassin is not running enter the command:

chkconfig --level 35 spamassassin on


Then restart spamassassin:

service spamassassin restart

SpamAssassin uses a variety of mechanisms including header and text analysis, Bayesian filtering, DNS blocklists, and collaborative filtering databases. SpamAssassin runs on a server, and filters spam before it reaches your mailbox. "
