-r tells the milter to tell sendmail to reject a message if SA has
scored it above the number given (whether SA actually tagged it as spam
or not).  If you run spamass-milter with a debug level of 1, you should
see lines saying "SA score: 10", and "Rejecting", showing the score it
extracted from the SA headers, and whether it decided to reject the
message or not.

I'm running SA 2.50 here and -r works fine.  It does rely on the
X-Spam-Status: header, though, so if you have SA configured not to add
that, then -r has nothing to get the score from.
