Rebuilding Spamd on cPanel

Spamd on cpanel seems to always fail for me. I dont if its something special within my config or if its just a cpanel thing in general. Because I am a lazy admin I dont always bother with fixing things but jump to rebuilding them…this usually does the trick for me:

rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep spam`
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/installspam --force
sa-learn -D --force-expire
sa-update -D

This just completely reinstalls spamd and cleans up any messes. Does the trick for me!
