hello there,
I have centos v6.4 and I have installed spamassassin by doing this "yum install spamassassin"

but for some reason everything seems to be running okay, postfix with dovecot and also spamassassin but no emails are being marked as spam while using test subject line "XJS*C4JDBQADN1.NSBN3*2IDNEN*GTUBE-STANDARD-ANTI-UBE-TEST-EMAIL*C.34X"

I also edited the conf file "/etc/mail/spamassassin/" to something like this
rewrite_header Subject [SPAM]
required_score           2.0
report_safe     0
use_bayes               1
use_bayes_rules         1
bayes_auto_learn        1
skip_rbl_checks         0
use_razor2              0
use_pyzor               0
