The script I used to upgrade, (provided by didn't make the
link.  I have now added it and that did the trick.

I'll drop a note to those other folks about the issue.

Thanks as always,

Did you run the script?

If so, you should have a link in /etc/mail/spamassassin/ which points to your spam.assassin.prefs.conf.

Once that link is in place, then all will work as you expect.
