    Default [SOLVED] SpamAssassin Bayes and Kill Percent

    If a email is received with a score greater than the kill percent it will not be delivered to the recipient; but does it get delivered to the SPAM mailbox for additional bayes training ?

    The 'kill' percentage means exactly that, kill it i.e. don't deliver it anywhere. It wouldn't make sense to deliver it to the spam mailbox as it already knows it's spam and doesn't need training.

    Hmmm, that would depend though on how the score was computed. If it hit a couple of URIBLs which pushed it over the kill score, but then another round of emails came in which were not in the URIBL, then the words from the first SPAM email would not be added into the bayes.

    Then your second case would get in the Junk folder or if it's in the Inbox the user would mark it as Junk for training. You can't have it both ways, a Kill percentage is just that no matter how the score is calculated.
