Problem with rulesets

The *score* is a numerical entry that you can set.  It can be a ruleset
but that would be under the "	High SpamAssassin Score" keyword, not
the "		High Scoring Spam Actions" arena.	
If you're only using one value for high scoring spam set "High
SpamAssassin Score" to that value.  Then point "	High Scoring
Spam Actions" to your ruleset.  If you want a different High
SpamAssassin Score for different domains, create a ruleset for that.  In
your email below, you were assigning a value in the action ruleset, not
the score ruleset.  Hope that makes sense.
Do you have vi?  Just in case it is a crlf issue (not likely but who
knows), open your ruleset files and MailScanner.conf in vi.  If there is
a ^M on the end of the lines, clean them up.
Also, have you tried running a message through in debug mode?  If you
stated you did previously I apoligize - I sorta get lost in all these
threads after a while.  I have a photographic memory but ran out of film
when I was four...

According to the link you posted, its a numerical entry.. It works on an
old mailscanner server i have access too. (i didnt set it up)

Maybe someone can post what their spam-action ruleset looks like, maybe
im going wrong somewhere.

	Ok, well ... that is wrong. The rulesets need end up with the
	settings for the paticular variable, and "20" simply isn't one
	them... See
