It's not the difference in score which is concerning me, it's the fact
that the first email is seems as spam at a score of 19 and the 2nd is
seen as non-spam with a score of 19.1

It seems all emails that are being picked up by the spamassassin cache
file are getting scores of spam, but are being allowed through as

If you look at the picture

you can see they both have the same score, except the one is just
being allowed through as if it wasn't spam, but the score is still 19.

I'm getting emails that are scoring well over 50 as spam being allowed
through as non-spam.
