The problem with this is that if the e-mail scores *anything* with
SpamAssassin, even if it is less than the threshold, it gets the
"X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: SpamAssassin" header rather than "not spam".
See Mike Kercher's contributions for an example.

I've had to go back to filtering on {SPAM?} at the start of the
Subject: field.
