I'm pretty certain an update was pushed out for this.

I reported this months ago, now that I remember. This computer had
11.0, I patched those rules myself, but I upgraded to 11.2 and those
patches must have been nullified. I have to check again to see if
there is an optional upgrade to SA.

Just check the rules-upgrade. (sa-update).

I have never used that, I rely on official suse updates solely.

However, the share of the lion is this:

4.1 FH_HOST_EQ_DYNAMICIP Host is dynamicip

Obviously, I am on a dynamic IP, so what? I'm not sending directly.

Doesn't matter - if you have not instructed your local SA installation
to treat googlemail as a trusted source, SA will look at your address

How / where can I tell spamassassin to treat Elessar.valinor or whatever host I
use as a reliable
source, even if it is a dynamic IP?

But that's not the only problem, obviously: it would only solve my local
problem. People getting
email from me, via gmail, may get my email filtered as spam. The rule is
triggering mistakenly.

I am indeed using postfix, but I am sending as an authenticated user
of gmail, same as if sending from Thunderbird or any other client. The
rule is confusing this.

Being an authenticated user of gmail does not mean "I don't send
spam" :-)

That's true, but it means that there is no point in checking if the sender is
using a dynamic IP.
Many gmail users will have that.
