I fixed it , i had a duplicate entry for that path in my   
spam.assassin.prefs.conf  file as pasted below

# While you can white list here but see below for a better place. 
# White list addresses should be added in                
#       /opt/MailScanner/etc/rules/spam.whitelist.rules               
# Black list addresses should be added in
#       /opt/MailScanner/etc/rules/spam.blacklist.rules
# FSL Notes: we need to set the default rule for:
# Is Definitely Spam = no
# to:
#       %rules-dir/spam.blacklist.rules
# and create a default rules-dir/spam.blacklist.rules file

I commented it back out like above and all was ok....

Weird, no?
