Spamassassin settings


#1

I’m trying to figure out optimal settings for Spamassassin through Squirrelmail and the number ratings look pretty arbitrary to me. it looks like 0 to 999 is the range of scoring. So what’s Low Medium and High? What’s aggressive spam filtering and what’s medium? is there some reference material for this i can look at?

Also, is quarantine the same as moving the emails to the trash folder in Squirrelmail? It seems that is where it is going. thanks for any help in this.

I go with 2 and 2, which is pretty aggressive. 5 and 5 is pretty good without too many false positives. You can always lower it and keep a close eye on your spam folder.
