You can remove all the SpamAssassin stuff from this. MailScanner calls
SpamAssassin directly, which is quicker than using the spamc/spamd route
that is commonly used via procmail.

They need to be writable by the user you are running MailScanner as.

This makes it look like you are running RedHat Linux. If you are running
RedHat or other rpm-based Linux distribution, you should be using the
RPM-based distribution of MailScanner and just install it that way. Much
easier. There are installation guides for the RPM-based distributions on
the MailScanner website.
