How can I correct umlaut and accents not being shown correctly in the spam log?

If foreign characters like umlaut and accents are not being displayed correctly in your spam analysis log you can correct this by setting your SpamAssassin report locale.  Warden will use this setting when converting everything to UTF8.

Edit /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf and set your servers locale:

report_charset iso-8859-1

Restart SpamAssassin

service spamassassin restart
