Failed dependencies error installing spamassassin-2.61-1.i386.rpm on RH7.0

I`m trying to install spamassassin-2.61-1.i386.rpm on RH7.0 and got the following error:

error: failed dependencies:
perl-Mail-spamassassin=2.61-1 is nedeed by spamassassin-2.61-1

Trying to install perl-Mail-spamassassin-2.61-1.i386.rpm get the following:

error: failed dependencies:
perl(Pod::Usage) is nedeed by Perl-Mail-spamassassin-2.61-1
perl(HTML::Parser) is nedeed by perl-Mail-assassin2.61-.i386.rpm

I`ve tried install the failing dependencies but didnt work.
In some forum they suggested:

Add the line AutoReqProv: no in all relevant spec files.

Any idea which relevant spec files they meant?? Or other solution?
