It's likely that after running upgrade_MailScanner_conf  you forgot to
mv -f MailScanner.conf MailScanner.old
mv -f  MailScanner.conf

SpamAssassin Prefs File = /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf
line in MailScanner.conf is now deprecated.

Subject: spamassassinprefsfile Error

I'm getting the following error in my maillog.......
Feb 20 12:04:26 as MailScanner[12190]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner
version 4.50.15 starting... 
Feb 20 12:04:26 as MailScanner[12190]: Syntax error(s) in configuration
Feb 20 12:04:26 as MailScanner[12190]: Unrecognised keyword
"spamassassinprefsfile" at line 2078

Feb 20 12:04:30 as MailScanner[12190]: Using locktype = flock 

Its the unrecognised keyword bit that confusing me as my line 2078 in my
MailScanner.conf is....
SpamAssassin Prefs File = /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf
Is this meaning that there is something worng with my spamassassin conf
file ? and no MailScanner.c! onf as the error is reporting ?
