    On the latest Plesk Onyx version, I still receive this error message!

    The Plesk database currently has 4 as value and the file /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin does not exist (Ubuntu 16.04)

    Hello @b_p !

    Since you have the newest Plesk installed, please apply the following solution:
    1. Log into Plesk
    2. Go to Tools & Settings > Spam Filter.
    3. increase value "The maximum number of worker spamd processes to run" up to 10.
