Sorry for cross posting, I'm not clear if this is a spamass-milter or pen issue. Or both.

I've been attempting to use pen to load balance spamassassin. I talk to spamassaassin
via spamass-milter.

The theory is:

sendmail->spamass-milter->spamc->pen (listening on port 783)->spamd on two machines

But it doesn't work. Spamass-milter fills mail.log with "Could not extract score from <>" and my headers are no longer updated with spamassassin scores. So something is wrong but I don't know if it's pen or spamass-milter. All works fine without pen.

Pen is started thus: "pen 783 localhost:10783 packard".

Spamass-milter is started with OPTIONS="-u spamass-milter -i -i -i -r 15 -I"
in /etc/default/spamass-milter.

On the localhost spamassassin is started with OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children 6 --helper-home-dir -p 10783"

On the "packard" machine spamassassin is started with OPTIONS="--create-prefs --max-children 5 --helper-home-dir"

This is Debian5.0 Linux on an x86.
