Spam Actions Problem

Well I guess you have a point, its getting a score of 5.9 which won't make it a spam, I can't believe I just overlooked the fact that it needs to be a spam in the first place :)

So what I did was add that email to my spam.blacklist.rules and leave the spam.actions.rules as is and boom, it deletes it :)

Thanks :)

That rather depends whether the mail you sent was detected as spam, as
anything that doesn't have a score exceeding the spam trigger won't have
the rules applied.

You might like to set
Always Include SpamAssassin Report = yes
so that you can see the spam score in the headers & see if the trigger
has been passed.

One other point to note is that MS looks at the envelope address, not
the addresses in the headers, which might be an issue depending on how
you are generating your test mails.
