It looks like it was installed by the rpm. Which according to the
documentation is not the recommended way. I have 2 questions then:
Can this be corrected so it doesn't use spamd, if so where can I start
looking for a complete answer on how to do it?
OR is the best way to uninstall the rpm, and to install using CPAN?
Thanks for all the help!
