Mailscanner doesn't use SpamAssassin as you've been using it. Because
Mailscanner directly uses the SpamAssassin API, the built in user-settings
from Spamassassin won't work.
There should be a symlink to a Mailscanner configuration file in the
Spamassassin directory which you can use for the global Spamassassin
settings. The per-user settings should be configured in Mailscanners own
configuration. You can define queries and database information there.
