Well, this means, this customized file would get overwritten each time I 
upgrade MailScanner, or not? We have been using SA much longer than 
MailScanner, so I prefer to configure and maintain SA at the location it 
used to be all the time. This way I can also easily switch to the other 
anti-spam solution we have.
I simply changed the path to that file in MailScanner.conf and there 
aren't any problems. I checked the spam.assassin.prefs.conf file whether 
we need anything from it and decided we only need the Ignore-Header stuff, 
nothing else. I don't know what you mean with the -p switch.
Of course, this still means we have to change the path each time we 
upgrade MailScanner or does it leave it's config directory untouched when 
upgrading? (This is our very first MailScanner installation.)
