Rather than blank, maybe just commented out as an example so it's easily
implemented w/o a newcomer having to track it down.

One thing that would also be helpful (if it hasn't been done already) is to
integrate/syncronize the spamassassin.prefs.conf supplied w/MailScanner with
that on the Fortress System site
(http://www.fsl.com/support/spam.assassin.prefs.conf.SA-3.0).  There's a
number of settings that are good but are either in a different location in
the files, or present in one file but not the other.  I go through the files
by hand and glean what I want to implement, but sometimes it's easy to lose
site of the forest for the trees.
