SpamAssassin score below 7?

I use 4 for spam and 20 for high score spam.  Over the last few weeks our
spam count has risen slightly so I'm looking at changing some of the
scoring in and also advising clients to have their spam actions
include 'striphtml'.

Does anyone whitelist ? I got an e-mail forged from that
domain with a score of 9.1 LOL

I'm also using 3.8 with good results. Very, very few messsages over 3.8
are not spam and the few that were I've whitelisted.

BTW I'm setting Hish Spam = 10 and also getting very good results
