Just to let you know I put out a new beta this morning.
2 changes of any consequence:

1) "Debug SpamAssassin" will be set to no unless "Debug = yes" has been 
set. This should stop the problems some people have been seeing where 
MailScanner claimed to be stuck extracting attachments.

2) The "forward" spam action is improved. As well as things like 
"store-nonspam" and "store-mcp", you can now also specify arbitrary 
directory paths, which looks like this: 
"store-/var/spool/MailScanner/dump" and it will create them as 
necessary. Not only that, but you can use the keywords _DATE_, 
_FROMUSER_, _FROMDOMAIN_, _TOUSER_ and _TODOMAIN_ in them, so can say
High-Scoring Spam Actions = delete 
and it will do what you expect. All directories trees should be 
automatically created as required.

Note that (2) applies to all of the appropriate MailScanner.conf 
settings, ie "Spam Actions", "High-Scoring Spam Actions", "Non-Spam 
Actions" and "SpamAssassin Rule Actions".

"Archive Mail" could already do this, as noted in the previous beta 

I would be grateful if you could download and test this for me.

Thanks folks!
