    Default Preventing spam autodeletion

    Hi,

    I have read in this wiki article: Improving Anti-spam system - Zimbra :: Wiki
    That if a spamassasin score is high enough, the message in question is automatically deleted.

    I tested this by sending the GTUBE spam test message to this server, and as expected it did not arrive.

    I am hoping to find a way to prevent this auto deletion - I just want spam to go into the junk mail folder.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Why do you want to do that?

    Because if high scoring spam messages never make it into the junk folder then my users will not be able to see if there are any false positives there!

    I know that it is not important that the GTUBE gets through, but I don't like the idea of messages with high spam ratings just being discarded without the chance for any user decision making!

    The probability of a rejected spam mail being a false positive (unless you've changed the Kill precentage) is almost non-existent, the false positives would be the ones tagged a spam and in the users Junk folder.

    I've had a similar desire to not block any message (and not just
    reduce the probability to "almost" zero).
    One thread from some years ago gave one idea to edit
    /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in and comment out
    $sa_kill_level_deflt
    $sa_dsn_cutoff_level
    $sa_quarantine_cutoff_level

    see
    [SOLVED] How to turn off "Kill Percent" for spam filtering?

    Another suggestion made elsewhere but not tested by me was to set
    $final_spam_destiny=D_PASS

    I also seek a recommendation for best action (or gui option) to totally remove the theoretical potential of a dropped message, ie to quarantine only.

    thanks,
    John
