Question Spamsnake Baruwa - Various issues

Thanks for a great how-to, after some time I finally got the system working!

Although I have some issues I would like some help with:

1) I keep getting "cron daemon" mails in my inbox! Aren't these supposed to be sent to root@localhost? I don't need all that info in my main inbox Is there somewhere I can change this?

See snip from log below:

From "mail.log":
Feb 22 08:43:01 mailgw postfix/smtp[2510]: 6AC2CC2B85: to=<mailadmin@domain.tld>, orig_to=<root@domain.tld>, relay=node01.domain.tld[]:25, delay=0.04, delays=0.01/0/0/0.03, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as 07E9720067)
Mail from cron I recive:
Reading status from /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/status
Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/2011-082 exists... ok Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/2011-082.18 exists... ok I am working with: Current: 2011-082 - 20 and Status: 2011-082 - 18 No base update required Update required Retrieving http://www.mailscanner.tv/2011-082.19
Retrieving http://www.mailscanner.tv/2011-082.20
Updating live file /opt/MailScanner/etc/phishing.bad.sites.conf
Deleting cached file: 2011-082.18.... ok

2) I'm getting errors in "mail.err" about DCC and ClamAV, see below.

From "mail.err":
Feb 22 07:42:02 mailgw ClamAV-autoupdate[8718]: ClamAV updater /usr/local/bin/freshclam cannot be run
Feb 22 08:35:08 mailgw dccifd[1264]: fopen(/var/run/dcc/dccifd.pid): No such file or directory
Feb 22 08:42:02 mailgw ClamAV-autoupdate[2298]: ClamAV updater /usr/local/bin/freshclam cannot be run
3) When running spamassassin -x -D -p /opt/MailScanner/etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf --lint, I see that my userid=1 and not 2. See below.
Feb 22 09:26:17.606 [3308] dbg: bayes: database connection established
Feb 22 09:26:17.606 [3308] dbg: bayes: found bayes db version 3
Feb 22 09:26:17.607 [3308] dbg: bayes: Using userid: 1
4) Using the Baruwa web-interface, I'm getting "Error connecting to server. check network!", when trying to perform a release, quarantine, delete, etc. on mails. I've browsed the web and suggestions are to disable Javascript, which seems to work. But is there any other workaround for this? It annoys me that I have to change Javascript setting all the time!

5) How do I setup my mailserver to work with this gateway/spamsnake?
5a) Are my clients still supposed to send mails via SMTP through my mailserver? Or should they now use the gateway/spamsnake to send mail from(SMTP)
5b) If I configure my mailserver to accept mails only from the gateway/spamsnake, how will my clients be able to connect via SMTP for sending email(if answer to 5a are yes).

6) I would love for someone (topdog), to check my server config and general setup via SSH, before throwing it into production, if this is by anyway possible.

Thanks for any replies.
Best regards
