      I have just setup mailscanner with the mailwatch front end
      and although everything appears to be working fine, all the
      SA scores show up as negative numbers? Is this the correct
      behavior? Although I can get a positive score by sending a
      message through with gtube test, I have not seen any other
      mail get flagged as SPAM?

Have you been getting a lot of email before you installed MS that you
considered to be SPAM? When you run MW Recent Messages showing the last
50 messages, do any of them look like they should be SPAM? If so, then I
would worry.
