I never assumed I was doing it right for five years but I now know how
much more wrong I was ;-)

He may need some time.  Remember, he assumes he's been doing it right
for five years.

Ok, a last hint. I didn't look at your pastebin log before. Now I did.
Two seconds. This shows that (as I already told you!) your SA is
*seriously* misconfigured. 

80.[14922] dbg: config: using "/etc/mail/spamassassin" for site rules
dir 81.[14922] dbg: config: read file
82.[14922] dbg: config: read file
168.[14922] dbg: config: read file

None (almost none) of these files belong there. And one of the files is
overscoring your custom score. I could tell you which, but I'm sure
you'll find it by yourself. Or you just remove all of them (except for
local.cf and mailscanner.cf and any files you wrote yourself) as they
don't belong there!

You need to read up on how to use SA and how it works. Please.
