installed MailScanner with Sendmail and ClamAV, the setup is working fine,
but occasionally some spam passes through the MailScanner/Spamassassin. For
e.g. please find the below mail received by one of the user and the
spamassassin score report, I have kept number 6 as the cut-off for spam. My
question is there is a word Viagra in the mail (Subject) then why
spamassassin is not marking it as spam.   
The mere presence of a word is
not a reason for spamassassin to generate a big score. In fact you get over
2 points for that in this example.

If you want to change that then write
up your own rule(s). There should be plenty of examples in the archives of
this mailinglist.
