    Default What is done with emails with spamassassin score higher then Kill percent?

    It is simple...
    Spamassassin get some score.
    to the Tag percent (from score 20) it is HAM.
    From Tag to Kill percent it is SPAM, but delivered to the Junk

    Over Kill percent (75% from score 20) is not delivered.

    And my question is, what is done with email which has score higher then Kill percent?

    Is purged or sender got error message?

    Is possible to store these emails over Kill percent in the some special account...?

    Thank you.

    This has been covered in the forums, the messages are 'killed'' i.e removed.

    Not with the current settings. Why would you want to keep spam?

    Sorry that I am cannot find it.. I have tried to find it...

    It is because of score over 15 cannot be at 100% spam. It can be caused because of sender is on RBL etc. There are problems with some forums, registrations, lost passwords etc.

    So I just think that I can move kill percent to 100 (maybe to more? 200percent is score 40?) and "everything" will be delivered to the Junk of the user.

    Is it possible to setup this Kill percent per account?

    I doubt that very much, just being on an RBL is most unlikely to trugger the message as being above the Kill percentage. Have you modified them at all. You'll find details in the log files (and your daily mail report) if the message has been killed.

    .... again, I doubt that would cause problems.

    Your users will soon get fed up with checking their Junk folder.
