I don't understand. If a message is assigned a spam score, must it not
have been scanned?

I spent hours pouring through this, the FAQ and other documents. The
best I could figure out was to add this to

# put headers in all messages (no matter if spam or not)
warn  spam = nobody:true
      add_header = X-Spam-Score: $spam_score ($spam_bar)
      add_header = X-Spam-Report: $spam_report

# add second subject line with *SPAM* marker when message
# is over threshold
warn  spam = nobody
      add_header = Subject: *SPAM* $h_Subject:

# reject spam at high scores (> 6)
deny  message = This message scored $spam_score spam points.
      spam = nobody:true
      condition = ${if >{$spam_score_int}{120}{1}{0}}

But messages over a score of 6 are not rejected.

I didn't mention Exiscan. I thought it had been replaced by
EximContentScanning. The document you directed me to seems largely to
do with Exiscan.
