[({Spam?})] FH_DATE_PAST_20XX 3.38

So not sure what rabbit hole to go down next. If I own all the files as postix and run the file though spamassassin as root and as postfix I still get the FH_DATE_PAST score as the same for both users. If I create /var/spool/postfix/.spamassassin/user_prefs and add score FH_DATE_PAST and run the file as postfix it does not score the date and this is what I want. 

Why is my question. It must have something to do with rights but where/how does it have something to do with rights if I own all the files as postfix?

Have you considered my advice regarding access/permissions?
The thing is that the debug output you shouw actually include the
configuration files you cite, so either something is very wrong in
them (which shouöd've shown up in a lint), or your postfix user simply
cannot read the files you create/edit. Since MailScanner will be
running as that user, it is pretty important that it can;-).
Assuming your postfix user is named "postfix, try becoming that user
via "su - postfix -s /bin/bash", then try reading the files with any
tool (like "less")... Can you? If so, go on to try running
"spamassassin -D --lint" and (using a message from your quarantine, or
similar) "spamassassin -t -D < /path/to/mail/file"... Does that differ
from your previous run, and if so... in what ways?
