MailScanner delivering Spam as attachments

Good morning,

It has been a busy week, with so much going on maybe I have just missed 
something simple.

I have upgrade both instances of MailScanner, Clamav, SpamAssassin. I am 
in the process of migrating all our Spam filtering off the toasters and 
on to the MailScanner boxes. I want to have MailScanner only test for 
spam and add the requested headers, nothing more. I will have the 
individual toasters read the headers and deliver the message appropriately.

I've changed my MailScanner.conf to read as follows for my test domain,

Spam Modify Subject = no
Spam Checks = %rules-dir%/user.filtering.rules
Use SpamAssassin = yes
Cache SpamAssassin Results = yes
Spam Actions = %rules-dir%/
High Scoring Spam Actions = %rules-dir%/
Non Spam Actions = deliver
To: * deliver

# default delivery
To:     default         deliver attachment

To:     *  yes
# Default, don't filter anything else coming through!
To:     default no
From:   default no
# default delivery
To:     default         store

I think this is all correct, however, spam delivered to 
is still attached to a warning message. No clue what I have done wrong 
here. I even restarted MailScanner a couple of times, and waited 
overnight so it could restart itself.



Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
