Might be that ALL_TRUSTED is firing when it shouldn't... Check that it
only fires for hosts you really do trust. If it does fire for messages
other than those it should fire for, it indicates you have a broken
trust path and should set trusted_networks accordingly (to _not_ trust
the frontend servers/IP-range).
But then again, you might have fixed this already:-).
There is some nice article on the subject in the SpamAssassin wiki...

Ken giving the lie to my assertion there is no provision for this in
MS... Then again, with a Custom Function... anything goes:-).
