Ignore SpamAssassin's internal settings - you'll find MailScanner overrides
most of them anyway (eg it does its own subject line mangling, header
insertions, and body alterations...)

What you need are rulesets for things like:
(High Scoring) Spam Modify Subject
(High Scoring) Spam Subject Text
Use SpamAssassin
Required SpamAssassin Score
High SpamAssassin Score



I can resist everything but temptation,
I can tolerate everything but intolerance,
and I can survive everything but death.
