    I'm having a little trouble understanding the scoring. In a default setting the default tag level is 3.0, the tag2 level is 4.0
    If I change the settings to:
    $sa_tag_level_deflt  = 2.5; # add spam info headers if at, or above that level
    $sa_tag2_level_deflt = 3.5; # add 'spam detected' headers at that level
    $sa_kill_level_deflt = $sa_tag2_level_deflt;
    $sa_dsn_cutoff_level = 10;
    $sa_spam_subject_tag = '***SPAM*** ';
    Did I strengthen the settings or weaken them? I'm trying to get it to catch more spam.
    Can someone explain what the dsn_cutoff_level is exactly?
    Also wondered if there's any more that could be added to the script? Like perhaps a rule that catches dates, a lot slip by SA by using an old date or a future date?

    You strengthened them.
    $sa_tag_level_deflt is the level beyond which email get a mark in their header that it could be spam.
    $sa_tag2_level_deflt is the level beyond which emails are marked as spam.

    That's the level beyond which no delivery status notifications (DSN) (like the email couldn't be delivered, was bounced, etc.) are sent to the sender.
