- Mail::Audit, Mail::Internet, Net::SMTP        (from CPAN)

    If you want to use SpamAssassin for local delivery to a qmail or
    MailDir spool, and you do *not* want to use procmail for some reason,
    you will need to install the Mail::Audit module, and any modules it
    requires (there's lots of them, unfortunately).   This is no longer

    If you use procmail, KMail, or you plan to use 'spamd', you will *not*
    need these.

    Here's how to install them using

        perl -MCPAN -e shell
        o conf prerequisites_policy ask
        install Mail::Audit

I'm trying to install SpamAssasin

I used CPAN like the SpamAssasin website suggests.  All I install is
Mail::SpamAssassin.  Everything appears fine.

Then I restart MailScanner everything is fine.  I change the conf file
to use SpamAssasin=yes and when I restart MailScanner I get the

Starting MailScanner: Can't locate Mail/ in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/MailScanner/bin /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0/i386-linux
/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux

Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/MailScanner/bin/
line 47.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/MailScanner/bin/mailscanner
line 77.

When I change the conf file to not use SpamAssasin everything is fine.
I tried to get some info off the website but it's down at the moment.

What's going on?
