    Default [SOLVED] How do I raise the spam Kill score?

    The administration manual says a spam score is based on 20 being 100%. How do I raise 20 to, say 100?

    Thanks.

    That only lets me change the kill percent: 100% = a spam score of 20. a value of > than 100% (say 150%) is invalid...so I want to make 100% = 100 and then adjust my kill and tag percent scores to where I want them.

    You cannot unfortunately ... The only way around it would be to modify the SA (SpamAssassin) scores to lower them so they are more within the threshold. Why would you want to do this though ? If SA marks anything over 20 then it sure is SPAM.

    You might be surprised....I've seen stuff pushing 20 if not over be legit....not real often, but I have.

    what I did in my old SA configuration was to forward the high stuff to another inbox that was purged periodically, but was reviewed when something went missing so we didn't miss any email, either.

    For our offices, email is the lifeblood, and missing something can be a big, big deal.

    Basically, I know the users would get more spam sent to their Junk folder, but that's exactly how I would like it.

    Set it to zero then for the kill and let it be tagged and moved into the Junk folder for the user ?

    So setting the kill percent to zero (0) will turn off the kill?

    Sweet!

    I'm not sure setting kill percent to 0 definitely turns off the kill....I ended up following these instructions from this thread

    I should also note, that part of my reason for wanting to do this comes down to cost justification as well. I can quickly point to how much spam we're catching and how well the system is handling it. For our small company, averaging 1-2 hours per day messing with spam is a company cost of $80,000 to $150,000annually...and I've seen worse than that prior to bringing email in-house.

    It would be nice to have an option in the GUI to do this without heading to the .conf files, which I'm unsure if they will be over-written when I perform an upgrade.

    The way to get it added to the Admin GUI is for people to vote for Bug 11063 - Need ability to specify just tag but don't kill spam.
