That is a SpamAssassin rule file.  You need to place it in your 
SpamAssassin site rules directory, on my system that is 
/etc/mail/spamassassin.  Just copy it into that directory, you don't 
need to change any other settings.  You will need to restart 
MailScanner so that it rereads the config and rules files.
