You have at least 2 versions installed. Get rid of all of them and start 
again. You don't need to run the spamd daemon if you are using 
MailScanner as it doesn't use it anyway, it communicates more directly 
with SpamAssassin without the daemon getting in the way.

Delete all of those RPMs and fetch a nice shiny new version from your 
favourite source.
