[Mimedefang] Spamassassin and MimeDefang custom rules

Hi All,

I am using MD and SA together and am revisiting a problem I had a while
back as it still seems to be an issue.

Using a debug message in the filter at the point of spam_assassin_init,
I display the $config var and it tells me that my sa config file is 


In this config file I have the following custom test

header BAD_TEST             Subject =~ /xyzzy/i
score BAD_TEST              6.00
describe BAD_TEST           Local Rule

If I send a mail in from the outside to my local MTA this rule is
completely ignored.

However, SA is working fine in all other ways that I can see and the sa
updates have worked smoothly from day 1.

Is there some way to capture a log of SA activity so I can perhaps see
where I am going wrong?

Thanks all,
