Dspam and MailScanner

I'm currently running Ubuntu Hardy with MailScanner 4.68/Postfix 2.5.1
via SpamSnake.  I don't have a complete guide for the Dspam inclusion as
yet but heres a summary.  I installed Dspam 3.68 using apt, but it's not
the current version.  I'm using it as a content filter for postfix.  So
the mails comes in and gets sent to Dspam and are reinjected back into
postfix on port 10026.  MailScanner then picks it up from the queue.  


I can see from mail.log that the mails are triggering Dspam correctly
and that the headers are added to each mail.  What I don't know is how
to get MailScanner to use the results.  Below is a sample of what it
looks like:


X-MailScanner-ID: 3E313B8327.019A5

How about giving a step by step of what you did? That way those of us
who haven't tried it can, and those who have might make suggestions...
Remember to include things like os, mta, etc. - if it's too long you can
use the wiki or pastebin.

	I've gotten Dspam working with my MailScanner setup on Ubuntu.
I can see both MailScanner and Dspam headers added to my messages.
Dspam is tagging missed messages as **SPAM**, per my setup.  I just
don't know how to combine the 2 scores.  I tried the Spamassassin perl
module for Dspam, but it doesn't work either and requires Amavisd-new to
combine the scores.


	I tried Dspam as a GenericSpamScanner, but I couldn't tell if it
was working as I didn't see anything in the mail.log.


	Any suggestions?
