There's some confusion ;-) The rpm creates a symlink
ln -s /etc/MailScanner/spamassassin.prefs.conf 

(Just see I omitted the "spamassassin" accidentally, but I guess, Jules 
understood what I meant.)

This is not good if you have already a working spamassassin config in 
/etc/mail/spamassassin. Thus I first removed it and then touched a file 
there. Still the rpm overwrites that with a symlink. So, one has to 
correct this with each installation.
