do you split messages to multiple recipients into one message per recipient? Maybe this is the point.

If you use different Spam Scores per Domain, you probably use a rules file. Are you sure, the rules file is setup correctly? The default rule should be at the end of the file. 

By the way: MailScanner works perfectly for me with different Spam Scores for the different domains. So there is probably a little dot missing in your configuration.
