 Well, I had tried a while back but I didn't know
exactly where to put it.  I tried appending the rules inside to
spam.assassin.prefs.conf but that didn't work---or at least I don't
think it did. :)

I'll try saving the .cf to /etc/mail/mailscanner and reload mailscanner
and see if that works.  At least now I know where to put these darn
rules! :)

Thanks for your help!

You also might want to look at setting up the Rules_du_jour script.  It's
a handy way to keep those .cf files from the Emporium up to date.
I just implemented this myself.  I get a fresh set of .cf files every day
