[Mimedefang] Mimedefang + Spamassassin but no X-Spam-Score

I figured out my issue.  By default, MD will only scan emails smaller than 100KB.  I was trying to find where that was set.  I edited mimedefang-filter and upped the email size limit.  Currently testing to see what the load is like on the server with the new limit.

Yes, X-Spam scores are put in all the emails through my server.  Here is the header for your reply.

are you sure, you get the X-Spam-Score-Header everytime the mail is scanned 
by spamassassin via mimedefang? Setting of this header is defined in sub 
filter_end() and usually the header is set only if the score is high
