spamassassin 2.53 & MailScanner

When I set mine up I ran it as 'root' as that's the UID that MS/SA run
under.  You don't _have_ to run it at all - it is only used when reporting
spam back to Razor using 'razor-report'.

Kind regards,

A quick question about installing razor2, if I may...

The installation instructions talk about running 'razor-admin -create'
to create a default config file in your home directory. Is this
necessary if you only intend to use it with SpamAssassin and, if so,
should this be run as root?
