Thanks.  I saw my problem with the KNOWN_SPAMMERS, but after fixing it I
still the same error.  I even removed KNOWN_SPAMMERS from my mm_cfg.py and
I still get the error.

Looking at the code in SpamDetect,  I don't see how it could get that
error without KNOWN_SPAMMERS defined.  It shouldn't enter the loop at all.
 Is the config file cached somewhere?

Thanks again for the response.
