Okay, I removed the RH rpm of spamassassin, but this has the side
effect of removing all of the SA rules in /usr/share/spamassassin.
Since these rules are not recreated with the
install-Clam-0.88.7-SA-3.1.8 package, I'm assuming that I have to get
a spamassassin tarball in order to install them.  Correct?  Without
these rules in place, I go back to the problem of no scoring.  I
recovered the directory from backup, rather than reinstall the rpm,
and it alleviated it.

Basically the current situation is this:
* Installed install-Clam-0.88.7-SA-3.1.8
* Removed RH rpm of spamassassin
* Recovered /usr/share/spamassassin directory and contents
* Status: Spam scoring working once again, as expected.

I just want to know for the future if I'll need to download and
install a spamassassin tar file as well as the MailScanner Clam-SA tar

Thanks for all the help everybody.
