    Spamassassin configuration question

    Hi
    I am using Postfix+Spammassassin. I see spamassassin do have a pretty high accuracy. Usually I set Score 5 to be marked as spam. But it is still annoy to be in the spam folder, if it is clearly a spam (score 20+) . So is there a way to bounce a mail if it scores 20+?
    Thanks

    Re: Spamassassin configuration question

    I use spamassassin in combination with amavis. With amavis is it possible to configure a kill level. If the score is equal or above this level you can choose what to do with it.

    amavis config
    Code:
    $sa_kill_level_deflt = 8.0; 
    $final_spam_destiny       = D_DISCARD;

    You should indeed check lerok2's post and set that up. He also stated that you should DISCARD the spam.

    You should NEVER bounce spam email, then your server can be used for backscatter, which is not a good thing.

    You should give a try to amavis as it will also run virus detection and it is highly configurable (using database as a setting storage you can give your users some control on your spam/virus policies).
