Description Sebastian Latza 2004-01-24 08:25:01 UTC
SA uses the "LANG"-locale settings of the executing user to determine which 
translated header shoud be used for the report (e.g. 
30_text_de.cf,30_text_es.cf...). 
- This seems a bit unhandy for big site-wide installations with multi-national 
users, because you don't want english users to get german/spanish/french 
reports.
- You might also not want to change the locale of the user running spamd 
because of other programs/deamons running under the same uid and requiring a 
specific LANG setting. (workaorund: running spamd with an own user,but this 
might not always be possible)

Solution:
-A switch on a per-user-base in the userprefs/mySQLDB where lang-settings can 
be made individually
-or at least a possibility to override the locale detection globally
