If you are going to do that, you must have a SpamAssassin.py handler
and it needs to be installed in Mailman/Handlers/ - mm_cfg.py is
normally in the same Mailman/ directory as the Handlers/ subdirectory,

In older RedHat Systems, the Mailman directory was
/var/mailman/Mailman. More recently, RedHat has moved things according
to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) and the Mailman directory
is /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman. I think that mm_cfg.py is
/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py and there is a symlink to that at
/etc/mailman/mm_cfg/py. See
