Enabling spamassassin in claws email

I was using sylpheed  so i have decided to enable local scanning for this i needed to upgrade the email client to claws mail (it does have the sa scanning plugin)

so first remove the sylpheed , then install claws email
sudo apt-get install claws-mail
then install the sa plugin

claws-mail-spamassassin


next step is to enable the spamd daemon

in /etc/default/spamassassin

enable
ENABLED=1


sudo /etc/init.d/spamassassin restart

Next load the plugin in the email client


and then configure it to use the local daemon

You can see it at work by marking sad figure over the emails with spam
I have created a filter to move them to Trash folder
