I am wondering why messages marked with a score such as -35 are tagged
as s p a m in the subject line when the required as 5 and all
the header information says it is not s p a m, I have attached the
message.  I've had this issue several times and with different
MailScanner versions.

If you look at the subject of the mail notice that it begins...

So the pass through a Mailscanner that generated the -35 score is not
the same pass that altered the subject - it may not even have been your
Mailscanner that did it.  I would suggest changing your spam subject in
some subtle way (maybe square brackets, ALL CAPS or two question marks)
so you can see if it is generated by your mailscanner.

BTW... one of the reasons it got such a low score is that you have
auto-whitelisting on, which is probably not such a good idea with MS
(unless this machine doesn't serve multiple users). Check the archives
for the reasons!
