I gues spamassassin's default installation thinks you want to run spamd... 
you can probably disable that via
/etc/rc.d/init.d/spamassassin stop
chkconfig --del spamassassin
(so it doesn't start next time you reboot).

This is probably the culprit... if you use "Delivery Method = queue", 
MailScanner just leaves the messages in the sendmail queue, which, usually is 
processed every 15 minutes (you can change that in the MailScanner startup 
script at /etc/rc.d/init.d/MailScanner).

If you use "Delivery Method = batch", MailScanner directly invokes sendmail 
to immediately deliver your messages after it has processed them
