  I am not sure that it makes a difference.  But you could try

  spamassassin -D -p /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf --lint

  Subject: MailScanner and Spamassassin give me diferent scores


  Hi everybody, I'm having problems with spam mails, when I run "spamssassin -D < mail" I get scores up to 15 but when the mail go trough the MailScanner, it is scored with 2 or less points.

  I believe it's a missconfiguration, but I don't found the answer.

  I am running 

  MailScanner version 4.54.6
  SpamAssassin version 3.1.3
    running on Perl version 5.8.1

  When I run MailScanner --lint, I get:

  Read 748 hostnames from the phishing whitelist
  Config: calling custom init function InternalActions
  Initialising Internal account list
  Internal Account List read 2 domains and 1 accounts
  Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...
  Using SpamAssassin results cache
  Connected to SpamAssassin cache database
  SpamAssassin reported no errors.

  MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = clamav"
  Found these virus scanners installed: clamav


  and MailScanner -V:
