Changing SpamAssassin Scores

I am having a problem modifying the default SA scores. I am adding a
line to /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf such as

score PENIS_ENLARGE2 5.00

However, email that is hitting that test, as shown by the header, is
only score 2.3 or below. What might I be doing wrong?

Also, how do I change the MailScanner headers so that they give the
scores and the descriptions of every test that has hit. Setting
use_terse_report to 0 doesn't seem to do the trick.
