Summary: config.postfix strips off arguments to smtpd
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 13.1
Version: Final
Platform: All
OS/Version: openSUSE 13.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Minor
Priority: P5 - None

If spamassassin shall be used with Postfix, an argument like "-o
content_filter=spamassassin" must be added to the smtp line in

However, the config.postfix script strips off these arguments:

line 866: if( /\#?\s*(smtp\s+inet.*?smtpd)/ ) {

matches until "smtpd" and thus clears a trailing "-o

The arguments can neither be put in the following line, since lines 924 ff.
of config.postfix

} elsif ( /\#?\s\s(-o\s+content_filter=.*)/ ) {
if ( $use_amavis ne "yes" ) {
$line = "# ".$1;

comment out that line unless amavis is set to be used.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "-o content_filter=spamassassin" at the end of the line for smtp in, or as a new line after the line for smtp. Do not enable amavis.
2. Call /usr/sbin/config.postfix

Actual Results:
Arguments containing "content_filter" are stripped off or commented out.

Expected Results:
Arguments shall be retained.

Can be worked around by manually editing after the last call of
config.postfix. MAIL_CREATE_CONFIG should be set to "no". However, this is
merely avoiding the issue, not fixing it.
