The following will only work if your MTA is Postfix or another MTA that
sends mail to SA and expects it to be returned via the sendmail utility.

Put a program in the pipeline between spamc and sendmail that can scan
the message, extract the From:, To: and Subject: headers and log their
contents. You'll probably have to write the program, but it should be
simple enough in C, Python or Perl. I use a similar, but more complex
program to detect bad spam and discard it. It has an option to log the
sender, subject and rules hit. You can find it here:

The program is called spamkiller 1.3.2.

If you're using more elaborate glue, e.g. a milter, to pass messages to
and from SA, you'll need to see if it can do the same trick or if you
need to modify it.
