    Is there a way I can load a Blacklist database on spamassassin or use a URI server check?
    I got the strength level setup at a level that legit emails are passing with no problem, if I increase strength, legit emails becomes spam.

    I receive a lot of spam and a lot of them are still passing thru spamassasin as legit emails.

    I found this website with blacklist database and it shows how to setup on spamassassin.

    I don’t know if this setup will work with ISPConfig 3/spamassassin,

    Any thoughts on this or how can I make my spamassassin work more efficiently.

    Thank you.

    ISPConfig uses a simple default spamassassin installation with amavisd, so any tutorial you find should work.

    What makes me wonder is that spam passes trough your system as my spamassassin default installation catches > 99% of the spam emails. You should check the headers of the emails if there are any negative scores that prevent emails to be marked as spam.

    What are your tag-levels on your spamfilter policy, I have changed mine so many times in attempt to get it right that I don't remember what were the default numbers.

    What will I be looking for in email headers as negative score?

    Any altaration of file /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user will affect anything?

    Thank you.
