Times change, and the new kid is: ... systemd

I would be suspicious of a corner case of systemd, and it not 
handling the external interface connection, but ... that needs 
some research first

To partition the problem, perhaps change your iptables to pass 
all on that IP, add a spamd 'listening interface' rules 
[/etc/sysconfig/spamassassin -- a '-i' option, although the 
man page implies all interfaces are neing listened on to 
accept your boxes 'external' IP, and change your spamc 
connection to use, all come to mind
