GPG Signing Key
If you want to use GPG to verify the downloads listed above, please use
the SpamAssassin Release GPG Keys to verify them.
Note: GnuPG 1.4.0, and possibly 1.3.x versions, seem to have problems verifying certain signature files, including the type as used for SpamAssassin releases. If you are running an affected version, please verify the code using both MD5 and SHA1 sum values instead, or upgrade GPG.
Old Apache-licensed versions (from version 3.0.0 on) can be downloaded from archive.apache.org. Older, Perl-licensed versions can be found via CPAN.
