Do you have the following in MailScanner.conf?

        Use SpamAssassin = yes

Have you restarted MailScanner?

Do you have the following settings in MailScanner.conf?

# Do you want the full spam report, or just a simple "spam / not spam"
Detailed Spam Report = yes

# Do you want to include the numerical scores in the detailed
# report, or just list the names of the scores
Include Scores In SpamAssassin Report = yes

# Do you want to always include the Spam Report in the SpamCheck
# header, even if the message wasn't spam?
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Always Include SpamAssassin Report = yes
