Default Amavisd not identfying spam properly

Amavisd does not seem to report spam properly.

Suse, 11.1; Perfect Server; ISPC

If I run debug I get what looks like an error "Pid_file already exists for running process (3076)... aborting"...

Is this a good place to start?

This is a typical header from a spam (in the POP box not the client)
