Note that although this thread is entitled Pyzor we are now discussing
From man Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf
DCC (Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse) is a system similar to Razor.
This option sets how
often a message's body/fuz1/fuz2 checksum must have been reported to
the DCC server before
SpamAssassin will consider the DCC check as matched.
As nearly all DCC clients are auto-reporting these checksums you should
set this to a relatively
high value, e.g. 999999 (this is DCC's MANY count).
The default is 999999 for all these options.
Personally, I set these to half of the suggested value (500000), to
make DCC trigger more often, like this in spam.assassin.prefs.conf:
Also, to get back to Pyzor for a minute, also from the man page:
Pyzor is a system similar to Razor. This option sets how often a
message's body checksum must
have been reported to the Pyzor server before SpamAssassin will
consider the Pyzor check as
matched. The default is 5.
I also lower this to 3 for my setup, again to make pyzor trigger more
often, like this in spam.assassin.prefs.conf:
