    Been searching but can not find a guide to using the spamassassin scoring.

    Can anyone tell me what the range is? is it 0-15 ? I know the common setting is 5 but can anyone tell me what the full range is and the effect of higher numbers vs lower numbers... I gather the higher the number the more likely a mail is to be classified as spam..

    Also - in the antivirus.rc.mater file, is there any way to make mail go to a folder insetad of /dev/null ???

    The following section is in antivirus.rc.master;

    | /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/bin/clamassassin

    * ^X-Virus-Status: Yes

    I have installed roundcube mail and buy default it creates a "Junk" mail folder - but nothing ever goes there. Is there a way to modify the X-Virus-Status section above to make any "Spam" flagged mail go straight into the "Junk" mail folder ???

    Any help appreciated..

    There si no range, it is from negative values to the sum of the scores of all tests. But I guess the max. value you might be able to get with a real mail is about 100 or so.


    yes :)

    There have been some posts about this topic in the last few days.
