Indeed, there are some differences, here are some of them:
MD uses a file called:
Instead of /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf.
The local.cf file is still parsed,
but if there is a conflict then sa-mimedefang.cf is with higher priority
(as far as I understand).
MD disables network tests by default (DNSBL, URIBL, etc)
To enable them you should add:
$SALocalTestsOnly = 0;
To the file:
And *ALSO* change the line:
Other files in /etc/mail/spamassassin would be read so you can keep your
existing files there,
such as files to change default scores, black+white list, etc.
So, in short - you should:
1. edit /etc/mail/sa-mimedefang.cf to your test.
2. Make sure to enable network tests.
My 2 cents,
