I had the same situation, until enough people asked about the spam
score.  I now have my script pull the day's logs from /var/log/syslog
and then search for the email id/SpamAssassin score entry and add it to
the email notification.

grep $emailMessageID /tmp/syslog.SpamAssassin | sed "s/^.*SpamAssassin
(score=//" | sed 's/,.*$//'
