If you can, run the latest version, which defaults to 5. Then you can 
make minor adjustments to the standard scores in spamassassin's, as needed (I've only needed to make a few).

I quarantine messages marked as spam by SA in the postfix hold queue. 
The few that I release don't have an altered Subject: line, so it's 
transparent to the recipient. I just comment that out in

# rewrite_header Subject *****SPAM*****

Reinjection by SA varies by setup. You may be able to do a header check 
to perform a desired action on spam messages.
