Hmm, I've been having problems for days not being able to send out mail 
with the spam header using postfix.  I don't know if I want to go with 
amavisd at this point if I can't get a basic spamassassin integrated 
with mailman working. 

After integrating mailman with spamassassin I can't even send out or 
email notification from my mailing list.

Below is my "mm.cf file", not sure if I've added the variables for 
spamassassin right:

# Put YOUR site-specific settings below this line.

MTA = 'Postfix'

SMTPHOST = 'birn-holly.ucsd.edu'
POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postalias'
POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postmap'

# Adding the SpamAssassin Filter to Mailman
GLOBAL_PIPELINE.insert(1, 'SpamAssassin')

SPAMASSASSIN_HOST = 'birn-holly.ucsd.edu'

My local.cf file used for spamassassin:
# Encapsulate spam in an attachment (0=no, 1=yes, 2=safe)
report_safe             1

# Enable the Bayes system
use_bayes               1

# Enable Bayes auto-learning
bayes_auto_learn              1

# Enable or disable network checks
skip_rbl_checks         0
#use_razor2              0
#use_dcc                 0
use_pyzor               1
