I had built up quite a Bayes history running spamassassin separate from
MailScanner as user gerry.  I wanted to be able to continue using that
history but I'm not sure how to when calls are made to spamassassin from
within MailScanner.

On a separate topic...

I have never seen a mention of DCC in the spamassassin scores when
spamassassin is called from within MailScanner.  I see those scores a lot
when spamassassin is called outside of MailScanner.
