Calculated Spam Score Settings
We strongly recommend that only advanced users edit the spam testing scores. Improper configurations will create unintended consequences.
Click Configure Calculated Spam Score to configure the individual test scores. The system directs you to the Calculated Spam Score Settings interface.
Apache SpamAssassin uses hundreds of tests, and you can assign scores to individual tests to configure Apache SpamAssassin for your server. Use this interface to modify the individual test scores that Apache SpamAssassin uses to mark a message as spam. You can increase the score of a test that incorrectly allows spam messages to pass through. Conversely, you can disable or reduce the score of a test that falsely marks messages as spam. For example, disable tests that mark bankruptcy emails as spam for a user who is a bankruptcy lawyer.
To update an individual test score, perform the following steps:
- Click Add A New "scores" Item to enter a new customized test score.
- Select a test from the scores menu.
Enter a new value in the text box that contains up to three decimal places.
