Spamassassin local.cf ignored - runs different rules to command line spamassassin

I am reporting this as a bug because to me this should work as expected but its not, and because no one has replied to the issue on the forums. See here for the issue https://www.virtualmin.com/node/64564

In summary, we get a lot of spam through even though senders and links in the body are on blacklists like spamhaus.

Running spamassassin on the command line correctly identifies the email as spam.

But running it as normal on incoming email is not identifying it the same as the command line spamassassin, and different rules are added, and its missing all the rules that would identify it as spam.

Howdy -- we're sorry that you're experiencing an issue with SpamAssassin and spam, though it doesn't sound like a Virtualmin bug that you're seeing there.

You may want to experiment with different SpamAssassin settings in Email Settings -> Spam and Virus Scanning, and there, see if one of the other options in "SpamAssassin client program" helps.

It doesn't sound like a bug though, and while we're sorry you hadn't received any responses in the Forums, if you had any followup questions you may need to keep trying there if the above suggestion doesn't help.
