Spam Score Limit

SpamAssassin screens each incoming email and assigns a score to the email based on its spam characteristics. By default, SpamAssassin considers messages with a score of 5 to be spam; however, you can adjust the spam score limit according to your preference. Simply select the desired spam score limit from the Score drop-down menu in the Filters section. The lower the score, the more stringent the filter will be.

    0 means everything incoming will be marked as spam
    5 is the default setting
    10 means nothing incoming will be marked as spam

Auto-Delete Spam

The auto-delete function automatically deletes messages which meet or exceed the spam score limit. Auto-delete can be enabled in the Filters section by clicking Auto-Delete Spam. USE THIS FEATURE WITH CAUTION. ENABLING AUTO DELETE COULD CAUSE YOU TO LOSE EMAILS THAT ARE NOT SPAM IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS FIGURED PROPERLY.
