Pfsense with Spamd

Hello All,

Question:  When I apply a IP address to the whitelist on Spamd do I need to reboot the system for the changes to take affect?

Any help is appreciated.

Although spamd will check per-user config files for every message, any changes to the system-wide config files will require either restarting spamd or forcing it to reload itself via SIGHUP for the changes to take effect.
That is what I found in the docs :-)

normally one would restart (on a Debian like system such as Ubuntu) spamd with the command
/etc/init.d/spamd restart
entered at command prompt
you could add this command to the crontab (to edit crontab use: crontab -e) to have the system restart your spamd periodically
adding following line to the crontab
0 12 * * *  /etc/init.d/spamd restart
will restart spamd every day at 12 am
