[Mimedefang] Lower MIMEDefang Spam Score than SpamAssassin

This post is an addition to my previous posting about MIMEDefang and 
Spamassassin working in conjunction with one another.

In running  tests against spam emails that have made it through to 
people's inboxes, it appears if I run them through SpamAssassin manually 
using the command "spamassassin -t < spamemail" it gets a much higher 
score than when it runs through MIMEDefang during the normal email receive 

At this point, it looks like MIMEDefang is indeed calling SpamAssassin to 
score emails. However it is inhibiting SpamAssassin in some way preventing 
it from scoring the emails properly.

Can you please point me in a direction to look at in terms of 
configuration files or anything else that may shed some light on what may 
be going on here.

Thank you very much.
