MailScanner & Spam Assissin


I hope someone can help me please

I have a RAQ4. I have tried to install MailScanner and MailAssassin to try to filter all the Spam that I have getting.

I have had problem installing it, but after a long time, I managed to get MailScanner working and install MailAssassin.

I installed a new version of Perl and used this to install MailAssassin.

But now MailScanner can not see MailAssassin..

As you can probably tell. I donít really know much about this, and have followed lots of instructions from various forums/websites!

I think the problem is with the 2 different version of Perl. I read that the RAQ need the original Perl to run the admin front end, which is why I installed another version. I am guessing that MailScanner is running with the old version, and SpamAssassin is using the new one.. is this correct? But is there anything easy that I can do to correct this? Or any advice that you can give me please.

Here is a part of the MailLog -

Aug 30 12:58:17 server MailScanner[11523]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.40.11 starting...
Aug 30 12:58:17 server MailScanner[11523]: Read 108 hostnames from the phishing whitelist
Aug 30 12:58:17 server MailScanner[11523]: SpamAssassin installation could not be found
Aug 30 12:58:28 server MailScanner[11524]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.40.11 starting...

With thanks

Here is a link to the MailScanner wiki page on setting up MailScanner to work with SpamAssassin. Click on the Installation link. There is a note on what entry to make in the MailScanner config file to get it to work with SpamAssassin.
