Recommended Posts

I have "Webmail / Options / SpamCop Tools / Select your email filtering blacklists. / SpamAssassin Limit" set to "5". I just got spam with the following header that wasn't Held:

What is your point?  SpamAssasin assigned a value of 4 to this message.

X-spam-Level: ****

Well, it did and it didn't.

Note that there are 4 stars, but the points are 5.0. I suspect a buglet in the SpamAssassin code somewhere. I've seen before 5.0 spams with 4 starts. Maybe there's a rounding error or something.

There's really nothing we can do. You can report this to SpamAssassin if you want.
