What do you mean by "filtered out"?  Do you mean it was quarantined or 
deleted?  What is in your maillog?

What are your values for:
Spam Actions =
High Scoring Spam Actions =
Non Spam Actions =

How about adding some verbosity to your MS setup?
Detailed Spam Report = yes
Include Scores In SpamAssassin Report = yes
Always Include SpamAssassin Report = yes
Log Spam = yes
Log Non Spam = yes  (beware it can produce a lot a output)
