I have the trial version of Clean Mail (version

In my spammassassin filter, I have set the required score for Spam to be 7 and have set CleanMail to reject/redirect these e-mails.

However, spammassassin seems to be using a required score of 5?

Here is a snippet of the header of an e-mail marked as spam:
X-Spam-Flag: YES
X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.2.4 (2008-01-01) on
X-Spam-Level: *****
X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=5.6 required=5.0 tests=DCC_CHECK,MISSING_DATE,
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="----------=_4B7C6B14.E9560000"
X-CleanMail-Result: Blocked (SpamAssassin)
X-CleanMail-MessageID: 4B7C6B0800000000
X-CleanMail-Policy: reject/redirect
X-CleanMail-Port: SMTP Proxy

I even checked the file in sa\ruleset and the following line is there:
required_score 7

Any suggestions?
