This can be kind of hard with just the configuration file.
MailScanner does however generate a detailed spam report in which you can see which rules affect the spam score of the emails.
So I would suggest that you look at that. If I am not mistaken, it is added to the logfile, but I have mostly been working with tools like MailGuardian and MailWatch, where the information is logged to a SQL database.

Otherwise, a quite small and easy thing to do is to change your "SpamAssassin Score" to a lower value, which would then filter out more mail

Best regards
