Would love to help you there, but my scanner of choice is MIMEDefang, 
and I don't know exactly how MailScanner is using SpamAssassin.  For 
example, MIMEDefang uses its own configuration file for SpamAssassin 
(not default one) called sa-mimedefang.cf.  In that file to use system 
wide autowhitelisting and bayes, one would place something along the lines:

#Enable AWL
use_auto_whitelist         1
auto_whitelist_path /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang-autowhitelist
auto_whitelist_file_mode   0640

#Enable Bayes
use_bayes                           1
use_bayes_rules                     1
bayes_path /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang-bayes
bayes_file_mode                     0640
bayes_auto_learn                    1
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_nonspam  0.0
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_spam     15.0

I know this is example how to get it working in something completely 
different, but hopefully it might provide some ideas to solve problem in 
your case too.  As you said, MailScanner list might give you more 
usefull answers...
