I updated one of my MailScanners last week.  Running sendmail, with the
following (from MailScanner -V):

Linux mxl #1 Tue Nov 29 14:32:49 UTC 2005 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
This is SuSE Linux 9.3 (i586)
This is Perl version 5.008006 (5.8.6)
This is MailScanner version 4.48.4
3.000003        Mail::SpamAssassin

Noticed some spam had made it through the filters this morning which had
a -3.14 for ALL_TRUSTED.  Bogus.  There was a thread last month about
ALL_TRUSTED, but it didn't mirror my setup in that I didn't change the
local rules dir, whereas that poster did.

I ran spamassassin --lint -D and it is reading the (link
in /etc/mail/spamassassin) just fine.  No additional dirs have been set
in MailScanner.conf:  "Spamassassin Local Rules Dir = "

I added trusted_networks and internal_networks to and no longer
see ALL_TRUSTED which is good.  Don't know why spamassassin would
suddenly start banging on ALL_TRUSTED - I didn't update SA - just MS.
It does seem that something changed though, so I guess this is just a
heads up to upgraders to make sure to check the logs w/in a short time
after upgrading and adding the requisite entries to if
