Spamassassin blocks email from local users

I have a little problem with Spamassassin in ISPConfig 2.3.12:
If a specific local user send an email to himself (with SMTP-Authentication),
spamassassin allways blocks these email because the dialin-ip from which he delivers the email is listed in

That shouldn't be, should it? If the user is authenticated successfully, he should allways allowed to send emails.

I have tried to put the users emailaddress in the whitelist for him , but that doesn't help.

The instalation is an perfect_debian_etch setup with postfix.

Any ideas?

BTW: Is there any way to enable logging for spamassassin used via procmail? Debugging is real hard if you doesn't see what is happening.

Are you sure it's blocked by SpamAssassin? Do you also use Postfix rules to block emails?

What's in the header of a blocked email?

Yes, I also use blockrules in postfix, but if the message was blocked
because of them, it would show up in the logfiles.
But I don't see such a logfile entry in this case, only the sender got a message that the email was blocked.
Unfortunately I havn't the header of the email because it was send via a smartphone which software doesn't display ist.
I will try to simulate it from an other device.

I have similar problem when internal users are receiving e-mails they are marked as spam.
When those users send e-mail to external users everything is ok.
Spam Whitelist is configured to exclude 2 internal domains from checking.
Configuration is fallowing:
