One issue I ran into when I setup my system was the fact mailscanner strips out some spamassassin headers.

X-Spam-Flag: header
Set to YES.


X-Spam-Status: header
A string, Yes, hits=nn required=nn is set in this header to reflect the filter status. 

I started using spamassassin by itself then added mailscanner later, but I was filtering using the X-Spam-Flag if ti was present or not.  And I noticed mailscanner didn't pass that flag thru.
