Appears you are implying this init.d script existed, then was removed
after installation which does not make sense to me.
1.Determine the spamassassin package name. ( rpm -gvf
2. Then rpm -qvl $package name
Does it show an init script?
OpenSuse uses spamd.
Also note that Redhat wrote the rpm and it is up to them to determine
what is included. I have seen more than one broken or incomplete package
in my career.
