theres a section in the wiki about getting the most out of
spamassassin. Tuning this can take a little time for you're

Alot of people run spam score at 5 and high spam at 10. they deliver
below five, tag at 5 and dump at 10.

If you can put up a web page with an example email (full headers in
mbox format). people can run it over their systems and see which extra
rules to add first.
