My /etc/mail/spamassassin/spam.assassin.prefs.conf is a link to /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf

I find it very confusing and lacking confidence in the system when the system provides a score for and don't see any other results from any other rules. 

I just want to make sure everything is working properly but my gut feeling is that it is not.

I also converted my bayes database to MySQL. After reviewing the conversion I noticed that I have no ham messages in the database. I am loading up some from various users to see if this will also make a difference as I find the Bayesian score usually shows a negative even for the most obvious spam.

You may need to tell it that you use the MailScanner provided prefs.conf.
Also, please use decent quoting in your mail reader. Otherwise it's not 
possible to distinguish what you wrote and what not.
