I'd look at your SA setup, make sure you're running v 3.1.8 abd have
saupdate-ed recently.

Also make sure you're running the URI-RBLs, dcc and razor2.

Third party rules from are a must are as is  the the
imageinfo plugin.

You could always ask on the spamassassin users list for advice on tuning you
setup and get some of the spam you get analysed by  those of us running well
tuned SA setups so you know which extra rulesets will help.

Go on as on the SA users list, we're a friendly bunch and will help you with
your problem.
