If you have the old MailScanenr and the new package... and a spare
box... You could just make a mock install of the old one, then perform
a mock upgrade... If that creates a .rpmnew file, then you can run the
upgrade script on that and copy it into the real server... should work
Or just make a mock install of the new one (if you haven't changed
anything in languages.conf, this is what I'd do:-)... should give you
a file with the "missing strings/variables" set.

If that seems onerous, you could alwayslook at/add any missing string
Close to the end of the file you should have something like:
# Used in SpamAssassin cache results headers
cached = cached
notcached = not cached
