It seems as if marc.info has a year 2010 bug as well, none of the posts on the OpenBSD mailing lists after 2009 appear to work.

Why didn't anyone predict y2k10?

From what I understand, this is just a rather silly hard-coded value (Could of been any year), and the fix will be easy (Use current year + n).

This is exactly the sort of reason why I don't like SpamAssasin btw ...

As far as I can see, users with sa-update running from cron received a fix (work-around, actually) on Jan 2. If you don't run this, I suggest you start a.s.a.p.
