I'm running the latest CVS with SpamAssassin 3.0.1, not that it matters for this particular issue:

Unless you have spamc/spamd specifically configured to handle messages larger than 250k, then spamc won't hand off the message to spamd and consequently, SpamAssassin won't scan the message.

When spamass-milter tries to look for the appropriate SpamAssassin header, it will of course not be there and hence you see the following error:

spamass-milter: Could not extract score from <>

While you can configure spamc/spamd to have a higher tolerance for very large messages, in reality, messages of that size (with really big attachments usually) are almost certainly not spam and processing them would be a waste of resources.

spamass-milter should either silently ignore the lack of a SpamAssassin header and recognize that it hasn't been processed, or there should be some sort of command-line option to disable this message for this particular case. I presume other people have run across this issue as well.
