Default Just a quick spamassassin question

Hello everyone,
I guess everything is working smooth except that i'm receiving hundreds of spam emails, the subject gets rewritten with ***SPAM*** but it's really annoying because they're like hundreds and hundreds. They get detected like 35.0 hit point, and in ISPConfig i've set Spam hits to the default of 5.0. I'm not really sure about the config: Spam Strategy. Does it mean that if i set it to discard those emails will stop arriving to the mailbox? And if so, should i set that to a higher value?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Yes, they'll be deleted immediately.

If you want to receive them in your email client, just create a filter in your email client so that all mails marked with ***SPAM*** in the subject line are directed to your spam folder.

Thank you Falko for your kind answer, just to finish, if i set that setting on, which level do you think is somewhat safe to avoid non-spam emails getting deleted? I set it up to 7.0.

Regards,
