Well, let me make this clear. In first place, I've experience installing SA
in RHEL4 and RHEL5 before, and after installing, if I say 'service
spamassassin start', this will work, which means service file must be
located in /etc/init.d.

But, this time, I'm trying to install in CentOS and after installation, if I
say 'service spamassassin start', this is not starting and gives
"spamassassin: unrecognized service", which means service file is not
located in /etc/init.d. So, here I don't mean that it exists before and is
removed after installation.

Hope this makes clear.
