Hi everybody

I'm trying to use MS/SA and I would like to do the following thing, I've
looked on FAQ and MAQ, but I didn't find the tips, maybe someone can
help me.

Some users want to remove ack message from their mails before
downloading the mails, so I've created for this users the following
rules in /home/nameofuser/.spamassassin/user_prefs

header CONTAIN_ACK Subject =~ /ack:/i
score CONTAIN_ACK 99.0
body CONTAIN_RECEIPT /Receipt/i

and in /opt/MailScanner/etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf, I've said
allow_user_rules 1

So, the problem is the following, when I'm running MS, it doesn't take
care about user rules.

If someone can help me

Many thanks
