 I started spamd in order to verify the consistency of my 
 /etc/spamassassin/*.cf files, and everything works like a charm. By 
 passing emails through spamc the rules works correctly.

 I looked into ../etc/amavis/conf.d/ for days but I could not find 
 anything that may help me. I will check it again, anyhow :)

 Two reasons:
 - Mails obtain different scores while filtering through amavis or 
 through spamc/spamd
 - If I well understood by running amavis in debug mode I should find 
 something like:
 debug: config: read file /etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre
 debug: config: read file /etc/mail/spamassassin/

 and so on, but nothing like that is in my log.

 I cannot find instructions that tell amavis how to configure SA.

 Thanks anyhow for the help, I will try harder ;)
