Mailscanner - Spamassassin Issue

I have just set up MailScanner in a PI3 running Jessie, I have postfix 
as a mail server.

I'm not sure MailScanner is calling or allowing Spamassassin to run 

I can see from the X headers that stuff is happening, but it is not 
catching emails that are blatantly spam.  i get a lot of scores below 3.

It passes the eicar, and gtube tests.

However i picked an email that passed through mailscanner with a low 
score of 3, saved it, and then ran spamassassin -D <filename>  and this 
process marked it as a 9!

I think, but am not sure, that MailScanner is not triggering 
Spamassassin or Spamassassin when triggered by MailScanner is either not 
completing or not doing anything.

I am completely new to this, and have no idea where to look, or what to 

Any help greatly appreciated
