Thanks Tony! It turns out that the Spamassassin installation creates
/usr/share/spamassassin/ with root-only access. Since I run Exim as
exim.exim, Mailscanner couldn't read any of the spamassassin files.

While I have the floor, creates /var/spool/MailScanner which
is only readable by root. It would be nice if could remind
users to ensure permissions are correct for that directory.
