Hi Glenn,

Thank you so much.
I thought it only can set one function (deliver or store or ...).

Yes, I got a lot of spams.
I have setup the FuzzyOCR tonight, and I test it via " spamassassin -t <
corrupted-gif.eml" and get high scores more than 10, then do " spamassassin
--lint" , restart mailscanner and run update SA in mailwatch (I can see the
FuzzyOCR rules on screeen ).

But it doesn't work, the spam with gif still comes through. I thought I need
to add some words in FuzzyOcr.words, but I use that gif to test it by
manual, my God, it got the 23.7 scores.
I think there must be somewhere wrong in my Mailscanner.conf or

Would you please advise me how to solve it ?

Please help me and thank you in advance.

PS: I don't mind it, but this is my fault to send you not back to the list.
