Score is -35 but it is still marked as s p a m, why?

Sun Apr 6 22:46:37 IST 2003

Okay it must have been a bug with the previous version(s) of MailScanner and/or SpamAssassin because it is working now with the auto
whitelisting off.  It might have also been another option in the /etc/init.d/MailScanner that I had changed, but now went back to
the stock MailScanner init.d script.

MailScanner  v14.4-9
SpamAssassin  v2.53
