Hello all,

I just read the excellent wiki article about using MailScanner and mysql
to store the SpamAssassin bayes database.  From previous mailing list
discussions I was under the (mis?)impression that this required running
spamd.  Since this is evidently not the case, does this mean that it's
also possible to specify something like:

user_scores_dsn         DBI:mysql:spamassassin:localhost

in the /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf file to allow per-user
spamassassin preferences?  If so, is anyone doing this already?

Thanks very much,
Neal Lauver
