Well, firstly, examine the mail full headers. There should be an
X-Spam-Status header listing the tests that matched on the e-mail.

At a first guess, I would suspect that your log includes a reference to
a blacklisted URI or e-mail. Given the nature of logs to contain 
information of this sort, I would strongly urge you to 'whitelist' the 
logs. For that matter, if this is internally generated mail, why are you 
running spamassassin at all? Or is this mail being passed via an outside 
(untrusted) network to your mailbox?
