Is it possible to change the output format of the,

    'Spam Header = X-%org-name%-MailScanner-SpamCheck:

field? I'm interested in getting the SpamAssassin _AUTOLEARN_ tag to be
printed as I think I may be experiencing a problem (pointed out and
explained in the SAtalk list) where spam with Bayesian probability of 99
to 100% is being auto learned as ham and is corrupting the Bayes DB.
