Yes, same as a command line 'spamassassin' or spamd.
The only difference would be that a different username is used.

Well, yes, in the 'debug-sa' mode, not in a plain 'debug'.

Either do a:

# amavisd debug-sa

or enabe SA debugging in amavisd.conf with a:

  $sa_debug = '1,all';

(the value is compatible with both old and newer versions of SA,
the 'all' should probably suffice with more recent versions).

Let's see the debug-sa first, before trying to guess what is happening.
