First of all, please turn off your autolearn in SA. That always causes more problems than it’s worth.

The X-Spam Headers come from SA. The weird thing is that your SA autolearn thinks this email is ham. I think there is something goofy going on with your bayes. You should clear your bayes cause it looks poisoned.

Interestingly, I have been getting a boatload of these this morning.
They are getting flagged as *****SPAM*****, but the headers show:

X-Spam-Flag: NO

X-Spam-Score: 0


X-Spam-Status: No, score=0 tagged_above=-9999 required=5

          tests=[HTML_MESSAGE=0.001, NO_RELAYS=-0.001]

          autolearn=ham autolearn_force=no

In the content, it shows being caught by spamassassin with:

 2.4 TO_NO_BRKTS_DYNIP      To: lacks brackets and dynamic rDNS

Which is what I would expect.
Could you enlighten me on where exactly the X-Spam- headers are coming from ?

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:

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,

        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:
