Check the man page for Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf.  Locate the 
whitelist_from_rcvd option.  That option will help you whitelist only 
your logwatch messages.  You'll need the "From" address and the hostname 
of the machine which sends them, as recorded in the headers of a message 
that you successfully received.

Your other option is to simply not run SpamAssassin on messages that you 
receive from hosts under your control, but since you haven't told us how 
you run SA, I don't know how you'd do that.
