To answer my own question...
so I edited the file /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
whitelist_from logwatch at localhost.localdomain
Where localhost.localdomain is your hostname.servername
And it worked.
However, I am concerned about spoofing. I would think that mail agent and
spamassassin would have an 'okay, it's a local user' thing going on.
They do not.
On the internet there are 1000s of posts like mine, asking questions about
this and getting no answers. I hope this helps.

Subject: Logwatch / spamassassin
Well it took a while for me to figure it out, but apparently my logwatch no
longer can be mailed locally on my computer as I believe spamassassin is
I can send it out to an email address outside my server though. So
spamassassin is only checking incoming I guess.
My question is....how do I...or should I.... Make all local mail go straight
to the boxes and skip spamasassin entirely..
Or.. Whitelist logwatch.
Apparently, I am guessing, all those nifty log reports are so full of
blacklisted urls and ips...well, you get the picure.
Best ways to make this work so I can get it delivered to root again?
