Spam Scores

Where can I go to manage the scores that spamassassin tabulates? I am getting messages that are hitting on a couple of RBL’s but they still only get a score of 2.

Howdy,

Anytime you see a SpamAssassin rule name (which shows up in the X-Spam-Status header), you can modify the value of a hit by adding it to /etc/spamassassin/local.cf, and giving it a new score.

For example, if you wanted to modify the value of "RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET", you would edit the local.cf, and add this line:

[code:1]RCVD_IN_BL_SPAMCOP_NET 3.50[/code:1]

To make it worth 3.50 points rather than it’s default. You’ll then have to restart spamassassin:

/etc/init.d/spamassassin restart
