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

    How would one go about making Zimbra deliver ALL junk mail into the junk mail folder and discard or bounce none?

    I would consider a successful test of this to be sending a GTUBE to a user and having it end up in their junk mail folder.

    I've set "Kill Percent" in the anti-spam settings to zero, and GTUBE still gets dropped.

    'View Original' of the email and paste the x-spam headers here. This will tell you what score is required and what tests are flagging this email.

    with his mention of setting kill at 0 (and it not working) i think he never wants it to kill/delete/drop spam

    sounds like his mail gets moved into the junk folder fine-but he does NOT want to make use of 'kill spam', just move to junk folder (and possibly the subject line insert)

    I'm not about to test if a value of 0 works -100 would kill those over 20pts...which means definate spam to most people
    but apparently he want's to save those emails

    probably just need to remove a few lines in configuration

    but if someone confirms that a value of 0 in the admin console does not disable 'kill' then it needs to be moved to a bug

    wouldn't that just kill those marked 20+?

    random thought:
    What would be cool would be the ability to sort the junk folder by spam score level; and set that to default sorting method instead of the date sort for just that folder.
    So viewing that folder you would see those on top with the least score. You could browse them easily to see if any aren't spam, showing you those that would be more likely to be ok first.
    hm...maybe a feature request...

    "Kill percent at 75%. Mail that is scored at 75% is considered spam and is not delivered."

    So, unless a spam message is tagged at 100% confidence (which doesn't happen), the message will be delivered.

    yes but wouldn't technically if you forge a header with 20+ it would kill that email-he wants it to go through to the junk folder

    heck I can't even send -and i mean you'll get a send failure right away-myself anything with the glue test in it-which is a good thing
    change a few characters and yes it will go through

    XJS*C4JDBQADN1.NSBN3*2IDNEN*GTUBE-STANDARD-ANTI-UBE-TEST-EMAIL*C.34X
    so apparently he wants to get mails with that content to his junk folder? and never kill an email-just tag/move to spam as the only option

    Default (Solution)

    I went into /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in and commented out the following variables:

    $sa_kill_level_deflt
    $sa_dsn_cutoff_level
    $sa_quarantine_cutoff_level

    Now, GTUBE gets delivered to Junk.

    They really want to do this server-wide?
    Wouldn't this be better for that user or user(s):
