Adding other spam scanners

I don't think you could use dccm with MailScanner, since MailScanner is
essentially the "client" in this instance and is calling DCC through
SpamAssassin (Julian can correct me if I'm inadvertently spouting

If I remember correctly, all I had to do to get DCC running with
MailScanner was download dcc-dccd-1.1.36, unpack it, run ./configure and
make install, and then make the changes to spam.assassin.prefs.conf
listed below.  After a service MailScanner reload, I noticed DCC checks
showing up in my message headers.

So far it seems to be running well.

Hope that helps.
