That was how to do it in version 3. In version 4 you just need to use a
ruleset to do it.
In your MailScanner.conf, put
Spam Actions = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.actions.rules
High Scoring Spam Actions = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.actions.rules
You want to do both to make sure that all spam gets processed
Then in /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.actions.rules put this
To:     majordomo at    delete
FromOrTo:       default         deliver

So spam addressed to majordomo at will be thrown away, and all
other spam will be delivered to the recipients as normal (but with any
Subject: tags you requested).
