Since the default for MailScanner is to use spamassassin modules directly,
there is no persistence that can be capitalized on except for normal
filesystem caching when things are repeatedly opened and closed. If you use
the patches floating around to use spamd, it might be of more help.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
