F= tells sendmail what to do if the milter is either not present or
times out while processing a message, which is useful if you are using
the milter to enforce business rules, or have some other situiation
where bouncing mail is preferable to allowing unmiltered mail through.

As Jack mentioned, the spamass-milter -r flag is what you're looking
for.  Set it to -1 to bounce all mail spamassassin thinks is spam.  Set
it to a positive number to allow spam between spamassassin's trigger
level and that number, and bounce everything higher.
