Are you running cat {mailfile} | spamassassin -D –t as root?

Greetings to all,

I have an issue with my setup somehow and it seems to be in amavis-new, most spam gets detected and delt with, some gets through and the scoring seems odd.
This one came in this morning and is typical of those that get through:

Return-Path: <rejuvalex at><mailto:rejuvalex at>

Subject: Regrow your Hair in 3 Weeks.

X-Spam-Flag: NO

X-Spam-Score: 1.995

X-Spam-Level: *

X-Spam-Status: No, score=1.995 tagged_above=-9999 required=5

        tests=[HTML_FONT_LOW_CONTRAST=0.001, HTML_MESSAGE=0.001,

        PYZOR_CHECK=1.985, SPF_HELO_PASS=-0.001, SPF_PASS=-0.001,

        T_REMOTE_IMAGE=0.01] autolearn=no autolearn_force=no

If I run the email through on the command line with:
cat {mailfile} | spamassassin -D -t
The results are:
