You shouldn't have to move anything, unless you've created your own rules, or are using 3rd party rules such as the KAM ruleset. Your local spamassassin files normally live in /etc/mail/spamassassin. Check there - anything that isn't part of the stock installation will (should) be there and can be copied over.
When I'm building a new MailScanner gateway I generally copy the existing /etc/MailScanner and /etc/mail/spamassassin directory over to the new machine. Then I install Jules' ClamAV & Spamassassin combo package. That makes upgrading easier as he's more consistant to release an install package when a newer version comes out than openSUSE is. If you don't have any home rolled rules in the spamassasin directory you probably don't need to copy it.
Next I install the latest MailScanner package for SUSE. The advantage of copying the files over first before the install is the install routine will see the old .conf files, and use them. If there are changes you'll get the .rpmnew files created. Makes editing the .conf files much easier. The install routine will create the appropriate hooks to spamassassin
Spamassassin itself will be installed in /var/lib/spamassassin/X.00Y00Z where XYZ is the version numbers. You shouldn't need to do anything with that.
Be sure to run sa-update after you install spamassassin so that it pulls down the rules. They aren't installed by default IIRC.
Hope this helps...

Subject: Mailsystem Migration
I'm currently migrating my Mail System from Suse 10.3 to 11.3. I'm realy confused about the Spamassassin stuff. I can't figure out what I need to move and where I have to place it.
I would appreciate if someone could give me a vice how to figure this out, or even can tell me what I have to move.
